NORTH PORT — When it comes to the list of five bidders vying to take over the short-term operations of the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa, one has perhaps the simplest goal in mind: getting the area’s top attraction open and preserving the 81-acre property.
Springs Management Services LLC is a group of four local businessmen led by Eric Kotte and Emil Dudko. Kotte, a 76-year-old Poland native, is a longtime North Port resident. Kotte is the leader of the Save Our Springs Now group, who organized several protests of the closing of the 81-acre day spa. The property is owned jointly by the city and Sarasota County, and closed June 30 after the boards failed to secure a contract to operate the city’s only tourist attraction.
