Bromitron Corp., an Orlando-based company, installed their generators this week at the resort's 19 pools. The generators put out low levels of bromine into pools to kill bacteria, algae and viruses.
``They're doing this for their customers,'' said Mike Robinson, president of Bromitron. He said there have been 50 chlorine spills in the past three years in Central Florida. Bromine does not cause burning, itching or staining like chlorine, he said.
HUNTER'S CREEK EXPANDS
COMPUTER SHOPPERS will have a nearby option when Jasmine Computers opens in the Hunter's Creek Village. Another new tenant of the shopping center will be First Class Dry Cleaners.
Trammell Crow Co.-Florida recently negotiated long-term leases for the two 1,300 square-foot shops in the center at John Young Parkway and Towne Center Boulevard just north of the Osceola-Orange County line.
The center is set to open in September. Its anchor store is Winn-Dixie.
NEARLY 400 people attended the annual Construction Industry Legislative Barbecue in early August. A straw poll was taken on some of the political races around the state. Jeb Bush won the gubernatorial race by a landslide, taking 81 percent of the vote over Buddy MacKay's 19 percent. Tom Gallagher took the Florida Education Commission race.
Voters were evenly split on another issue: whether they'd use light rail transportation if it were available. Forty-three percent said no, 43 percent said yes and 15 percent said they were unsure.
Participants in the poll were members and friends of the Associated Builders and Contractors, CFBE, NAWIC, NAIOP, AIA and the Mid-Florida utilities and transportation Contractors Association.
