The Siesta Key Condominium Council will conduct an in-person meeting beginning at 3 p.m. on Jan. 23 at Siesta Key Chapel, the organization has announced.

The meeting was rescheduled from Jan. 15, when weather advisories had noted the potential for severe conditions in the area.

The chapel is located at 4615 Gleason Ave., on the northern end of Siesta Key.

The program will feature two speakers, a news release say:

  • Mike Angers, senior vice president of the Brown & Brown insurance firm, will discuss issues related to condominium associations for this year and the future, including cost trends, availability of insurers that can provide full coverage, Florida’s Citizens Property Insurance Corp., hurricane windows and doors, insurance mitigation for individuals, and electric vehicle storage and charging at condominium complexes. He also will engage in a question-and-answer session with attendees.
  • Lourdes Ramirez, who won two legal challenges against the Sarasota County Commission over high-rise hotel issues on the Key. She will discuss current county development regulations for the barrier island, her thoughts on the prospect of future litigation over new hotel proposals, and recent County Commission action related to the topic. Ramirez, too, will answer audience questions. (See the related article in this issue.)
