City Manager Ed Lavallee points to the occasion as being a pivotal point of an infrastructure growth period, as Venice continues to recover from the Great Recession
VENICE — The city of Venice broke ground on its new 31,421-square foot Public Safety Complex Friday morning, with an anticipated opening of the $17.6 million hurricane hardened facility set for August 2020.
Friday’s ceremonies served several purposes.
Mayor John Holic — who is termed out, with his successor to be chosen by city voters in November — used his time at the podium to reflect on the past nine years.
City Manager Ed Lavallee highlighted the current boom in infrastructure projects, as the city continues to recover from the fiscal impact of the Great Recession.
