Dear Carol,

Please see attached the information requested and the below comments.

City Clerk
City of Key West

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public-records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing." Fla. Stat. 668.6076"


I have attached what I have. It is an initial memo for Jim Scholl's reference when it came before the Commission for approval and several designs. The dimensioned one is the one selected and installed. I have a photo as well after installation.

In the end, the Memo is not correct because the crosswalk was installed with supplies by Ennis Flint thermoplastic and they installed it as a training exercise for Public Work. The entire amount was paid for by donations from the Key West Business Guild. The cost of supplies and installation was less than the $5,000 indicated in the Memo.

That's all I have.
