We’re posting about the 2020 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday a little early this year to give parents, caregivers, grandparents and teachers plenty of time to plan ahead in the busy month before Pinellas County Schools begin on August 12th. We know that the school board is in the process of presenting several plans for school reopening, but whichever choices are finalized, Florida's Tax Free sales on Back-to-School supplies will begin on August 7th this year, running through August 9th, 2020.
Click on the link to see the official list of qualifying items which are exempt from tax, including certain school supplies selling for $15 or less and clothing and footwear selling for $60 or less per item. Note: computers selling for $1,000 or less are also on the list of tax exempt items, details here:https://revenuelaw.floridarevenue.com/LawLibraryDocuments/2020/06/TIP-123084_TIP_20A01-04_FINAL_RLL.pdf

If you are looking for an opportunity make a difference and you are in a position to do so, please consider giving blood this holiday week, through July 8th. All blood donors will receive a $10 eGift Card, a 4th of July t-shirt, and a COVID-19 antibody test.
If you find yourself in north Pinellas County today, and would like to give to a specific drive, there is one at the Publix in Tarpon Springs in honor of Charlie K. Kondek, the Tarpon Springs Police Officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2014, leaving behind his wife and five children. His widow set up this annual drive three years ago on July 4th, because Ofc Kondek was born on the fourth of July.

07/01/2020

Fireworks Safety: Pet Edition: The Kenneth City Police Department is asking all pet owners to keep a close eye on their pets during the fireworks we are expecting all over the Tampa Bay area through the weekend in celebration of July Fourth. “Pet owners should be aware that some dogs will do anything they can to escape the noise of fireworks," said Pinellas County Animal Services Director Doug Brightwell. "One of the easiest ways for pet owners to ensure their pet won't run away is by placing them in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area of the home.” Pets that panic often run loose onto busy streets, getting lost or ending up in shelters. Don't let that happen to your pet!
Other safety tips from Pinellas County Government and our friends at Lost and Found Pets of Pinellas County include:
• Make sure your pet is microchipped, license is current and tags are secured to the pet's collar.
• Keep pets indoors in a cool, comfortable place with some minor noise distraction such as a radio or television.
• Do not take pets to fireworks events.
• If you are leaving Town and cannot take your pets with you, make sure you leave them with someone who will be particularly cautious and responsible during July 4th celebrations.
Thank you, and have a Safe Fourth of July with your pet -- from all of us at the PD.

The Dangers of Consumer Fireworks

As you get ready for the holiday weekend, please enjoy your #4thOfJuly safely: Wash your hands. Don't risk losing them! If you decide to use #fireworks, use them safely, allow only adults to handle them, away from all structures and with a bucket of water or sand nearby. Sparklers can reach temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, for example, and can cause a nasty burn. If you're going out to celebrate, please drive safely and responsibly and follow Florida Department of Health (DOH) guidelines: wear a mask and social distance (6 ft. of separation) to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Have a safe and happy #FourthofJuly, Kenneth City, from all of us at the PD!

Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people u...

On Memorial Day we remember those who have died while serving in our country's armed forces. We honor those that gave up their lives to protect ours, and show our respect to the fallen by marking the day with ceremonies nationwide. We also remember on a personal level by sharing memories and reaching out to surviving family members to show our support.

Today and every day, the men and women of the Kenneth City Police Department honor, remember, and thank all who have served, as well as their families, for their dedication, bravery, and sacrifice.

All residents of Florida have been asked by our Governor to pause for a moment of silence on Monday at 3PM:

This Memorial Day Weekend, our focus is on the safety and well-being of all in our community. This is traditionally one of the biggest holiday weekends of the year, but it is like no other in recent memory, so we ask all our Readers to continue to follow health guidelines issued by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the #CDC, to #BuckleUp, to obey all traffic laws, and to be sure never to drive impaired.

Remember: if you’re celebrating with alcohol away from home, a designated driver isn’t the person who’s had the least to drink: make sure your designated driver is a sober designated driver and make transportation plans in advance. AAA’s Tow To Go Program has been suspended due to health concerns regarding the #coronovirus, so it is even more important to make transportation plans in advance and simply never drive impaired.

Kenneth City police officers will be patrolling day and night to educate, enforce and protect throughout the holiday weekend. Make safe choices behind the wheel this weekend, Kenneth City, stay safe, and stay healthy!

Kenneth City, we are in this together! As your police department, your safety and the well-being of your family and all our community members is our priority. The Centers for Disease Control are currently recommending #socialdistancing and other hygiene precautions (such as frequent, thorough hand washing) as measures to reduce exposure to the coronavirus, but we do realize most people still must go out to work to provide for their families and to earn a living, to run errands, to purchase food or groceries, to seek out other services, or simply need to ensure their vehicles are clean during pollen season and maintained for their commute.
That is why, from a Community Policing perspective, we would like to remind our Readers that if they are going out for goods and services to fill daily or weekly needs, there are opportunities and ways in which they can support our local Kenneth City businesses. Our Kenneth City businesses help make our Town a better and more interesting place to live; our restaurants, markets, shops, and services build on each others’ successes and contribute to our community’s quality of life.
Between responsibilities on patrol, our Community Policing Unit and Day Shift officers visited as many businesses in Town today that they could to respond to questions, listen to concerns, and to gather some of the ideas listed below as ways to provide support.
Here are some ways to support the commercial fabric of Kenneth City while following current CDC Guidelines: call our local eateries and inquire if they offer home delivery, take-out, or pre-paid “to-go” orders; take advantage of reduced waiting times at our auto repair shops and drop-off and pick up your vehicle without having to go inside a store, get your car cleaned at a “touchless” automatic car wash; and if you have the means, buy a gift card offered by a local business, tip a higher percentage, and, again, order to go! There are currently over 100 businesses in Kenneth City – take a look at just the few represented in this Album, and see what they have to offer!
**Important** Keep yourself informed so that you can act responsibly during this difficult time. For the most current COVID-19 / Corona Virus updates, please check the following sites or call centers. They provide national, state, and County perspectives:

If you have any questions or concerns regarding COVID-19 in Pinellas County, the County has opened its Citizen Information Center (CIC) at (727) 464-4333 (weekdays 8AM to 8PM & weekend hours available).
