Tarpon Springs voters approved all three ballot questions before them in Tuesday’s municipal election.
The referendum questions were the only items on the ballot.
Referendum question No. 1 will authorize the purchase of property near South Florida Avenue from Henry Ross. The 3.49 acre vacant parcel will cost the city $728,000 and be used for stormwater management and land preservation. It passed with 82% support.
The second question, which voters approved, will require the city to conduct a public hearing before June 30 ahead of each year’s budget cycle. Voters approved that ballot question with 88% support.
And voters OK’d the implementation of a strategic plan. Under the referendum question, the city will be required to update that plan every three years. That measure passed with 88% support.
