ST. PETERSBURG -- Patricia J. Anderson has been promoted to director of public utilities for the city of St. Petersburg, replacing Bill Johnson, who retired last week.

"Having served as assistant director of the department for over nine years, Patti is uniquely qualified for this position," First Deputy Mayor Tish Elston said in announcing the appointment.

"She has been actively involved in the operational, regulatory and conservation activities of the department."

Anderson, a professional engineer with more than 18 years experience in the water and wastewater field, began work with the city in 1992.

"I am looking forward to the opportunity," Anderson said in a printed statement.

Bicycle club hosts Thanksgiving ride

ST. PETERSBURG -- For those who want to burn some holiday calories ahead of time, a free bicycle ride takes place Thursday morning, starting at 8:30 a.m. at North Shore Park.

The race is open to all ages. Riders should gather at 8 a.m. between the swimming pool and softball field at North Shore Drive and Ninth Avenue NE. Riders are required to sign waivers, and younger participants should bring a parent who can sign for them.

The ride is expected to last about 90 minutes. Groups of riders will be organized according to skill levels, so slower riders should feel free to participate.

St. Petersburg Bicycle Club Inc. is the sponsor.
