NORTH PORT — Less than 24 hours after seeing his bid to run the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa for a year revoked by the North Port City Commission, Dr. Grigory Pogrebinsky was making a plea for commissioners to reverse their Monday decision.
Since being awarded the Springs contract about a month ago by the city and Sarasota County, who jointly own the 81-acre property, Pogrebinsky had delayed opening the day spa over what he called “life-safety” repairs, like overhauling the septic system, repairing roofs and resolving mold issues that were discovered after the Springs’ closing on June 30. As a result of the safety issues — which Pogrebinsky said in a statement Tuesday were resolved between the city and Pogrebinsky’s WMS Sarasota Management group — the doctor was seeking an extension of the 12-month, “as-is” contract to 24 months. Also at issue was the $100,000 bond that WMS Management failed to produce, as stated in the contract.
