City Council Candidate Forum
The City hosted a Candidate Forum on October 13. The three candidates for City Council answered questions posed by residents regarding their views about the various aspects of the job of a City Council member as defined by the City Charter. The Candidate Forum is available for viewing on the City's YouTube channel
October 19 – 25 is City Government Week, an effort spearheaded by Florida League of Cities, Inc. Traditionally, the City of Temple Terrace has partnered with Florida College during this week to introduce students to local government by shadowing department directors and participating in a mock City Council meeting. Because of precautions surrounding Covid-19, we have postponed this experience. But not wanting to let #FLCityWeek go uncelebrated, we are inviting our Facebook fans to demonstrate their knowledge of City attractions by playing our Where’s Temple? game.
City mascot Temple the Orange recently set out from City Hall to visit his favorite places in Temple Terrace. We will post one photo from his jaunts at around 9am each day during Government Week, beginning next Monday. Submit your guess as to his location in the comments below the day's post to be entered into the contest. (One guess per person.) One winner from the correct guesses will be chosen at random each day to receive a $50 gift card to a Temple Terrace restaurant. The winner will be announced on the next day’s post. On the final day of the contest, a grand prize drawing with all the correct guesses from the week will take place. The final winner will receive THREE $50 restaurant gift cards.
Only guesses submitted on the City’s official Facebook page will be entered into the contest. Winners MUST have liked the City page and be a resident of Temple Terrace.
Movie in the Terrace
The City's Leisure Services Department and Pilot Bank will present Movie in the Terrace on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Family Recreation Complex Soccer Field #1, 6610 Whiteway Drive. Gates will open at 6:45pm and the Library will host a slightly spooky storytime at 7:15pm. The feature attraction will begin at 7:30pm. (Due to licensing agreements, we cannot announce the name of the movie.) The cost is $10/square (a square accommodates up to 6 people). You MUST pre-register at the Family Rec Complex (no walkups). There will be limited seating to allow for social distancing. Call 813.506.6600 for more info – including the name of the movie.
Veterans Day Observance
Are you, or is someone you know, a veteran of the US Armed Forces? The City of Temple Terrace would like to recognize Temple Terrace veterans with special yard signs during the week of November 8. We are collecting names and addresses of these individuals in anticipation of the observance of Veteran’s Day. Please forward this info to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 813.506.6406. (This data will not be shared publicly.) Thank you for your help in honoring family, friends and neighbors who have served our country.
