“I wouldn't recommend stopping the program. You don't want to be Cape Coral and keep changing your mind,” responded Robert Ori, president of the Public Resources Management.
As I recall the Council used Cape Coral's decision to sewer their city as a primary example of why Marco should do the same. Asking the dodos in Cape Coral what they did was considered performing "due diligence" back then. Now, following their lead in stopping is stupid according to Marco's new consultant. But then consultants are usually hired to tell you what you told them you wanted to hear.
"John Arceri said that consultants were hired in 2003 to find every possible fault in the utility company’s system to lower the purchase price by millions of dollars for the city." I'm impressed, John! Your consultants found "every possible fault" with 3 days of technical inspection? Impressive! I guess that's why you threw out their report and hired Rony's old company, CDM, to do another!
"If you were to defer or stop the STRP you lose the new assessment revenues and monthly service fee ($50) that would have been realized if the program had continued... Any good business decision would drive one to look at accelerating the program and bringing additional customers on as soon as possible,” Arceri said. Wow! What logic! You spend millions of dollars now and sock people tens of thousands of dollars now to collect a few extra bucks a month which likely will not be sufficient to pay off the bonds you may not be able to float! John, you must think the best way to to lose weight is to double the number of Big Mac's you eat!
And Ted, I'm beginning to worry about your memory ... or is it your logic? All that water you see wasn't polluted before the STRP began. Go look at the data! If it's polluted now, you can thank the STRP for causing it!
John, face it! You s-rewed up big time buying the utility and the entire island knows WHO bought it. It's your pig, John. Put all the lipstick you'd like on it, but it's still your pig.
