Our city council did a great job and this article is very misleading. They made the tough decisions and did the right thing by a unanomous 7-0 vote none the less. If we want services in our city we have to pay for them, fire, rescue, police, recreation, etc. I thought the council’s decisions against the fire assessment and for the tax hike were the right ones. We can't expect to get services and not pay for them.As for McMullan’s imaginary 1600 emails, these are the same vocal minority that signed the emails in protest against the STRP and for the recall. The silent majority put the current council in place with over 5000 votes each. Ms. Farrell, I would do a little research and check the validity of these emails, if they even exist.It was Fay Biles, on behalf of MITA, formally requested the highest tax rate, not just one citizen as McMullan claims; he is an expert at spreading misinformation! It was evident that the council showed their dismay for McMullan’s nonsense, too bad the press didn't pick up on that!
My advice to the bloggers above...move to Sun City because Marco Island is not, and never will be a retirement community!
