SARASOTA COUNTY — Sarasota County commissioners, acting on the recommendation of County Administrator Randall Reid, honored Deputy County Administrator Bill Little upon his retirement after 44 years of public service Tuesday by unanimously voting to rename the Health & Human Services building at 2200 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota, as the William L. Little Health & Human Services Center. During the last 18 years, Little served as director of Health & Human Services and as deputy county administrator.
The commission also issued a proclamation declaring Feb. 26 as “Bill Little Day” in the county. The proclamation cited Little’s experience in health services, policy development, fiscal planning and disaster response, along with his extensive involvement in community organizations. “Sarasota County is a better place to live as a result of Bill’s vision, knowledge and dedication,” Reid said. “Naming the Health & Human Services building after him is an appropriate acknowledgement of Bill’s leadership and stewardship.” Little is a founding member of the Community Alliance of Sarasota County, the Behavioral Health Stakeholders Consortium, the Criminal Justice Commission, the Family Safety Alliance, Community Organizations Active in Disasters, the Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota County, the Healthy Start Coalition and the Health Provocateur Project.
