Let's not lose sight of what this article is about. The real purpose of renaming this inititive is not for clairification, but to furhter deceive the taxpayer. If the players who are promoting this are to be honest and transparent, then "they" would simply call it what it is. This is another attempt to acquire the power utility by the same people that brought you the purchase of the water works and the STRP. The motivation is same: acquisition of utilities for revenue enhancment. The City is limited in how it may tax us so they are looking for other ways to bleed us. Think about it, if you own the utilitiy you can charge what you like and you can add user fees whenever you like without referendum. Who are these people? You may find them representing us on our City Council and at our Chamber of Commerce, or amongst our Rotarians and lets not forget the leadership of the KOC. They like to work in the background, have significant wealth and consider themselves the guardians of Marco Island. Some of them grew up here and made their fortunes here. They are extremly enfluential in both Collier County and Marco Island. They control the City Council because they helped put the majority of them there. Coucilman Waldack still doesn't know how he won. "They" represent the elite of our Community. Their interests are self serving and designed to promote and protect their individual wealth and investments. The more infrastructure that our City is burdened with, the more responsilbity our City has to maintain it. It enables our Community to support and promte more tourism to increase business opportunity. That means more large hotels, time shares and condos. The City Council requires this new committee to document due diligence and justify the reasons for acquisition. The last committee was made up of too many average citizens who were too concerned with their own petty little lots. That committee was a mistake. The next committee will be stacked with some of the people who will directly benefit and it will succeed. Look to the composition of this new committee to see some of our real leadership. Just some thoughts.
