Petitions ask DeSantis to veto bill allowing parking garage on Anna Maria Island

Joe Satyshur and his friends play frisbee almost daily on the welcoming white sands of Manatee Public Beach, which is located at the end of State Road 64 on Anna Maria Island within the city limits of Holmes Beach. To the frisbee players and so many others, the pristine beach is pure paradise. But Satyshur, who lives on nearby Perico Island, worries the beloved paradise could be diminished soon, because a multi-story parking garage could be built at the public beach access, which is managed and maintained by Manatee County.
