Has the Marco gov't lost its common sense and control? A shell driveway? A Fire Chief who is questionably trained and/ or qualified demonstrates a ridiculous scenario all the while posturing a safety issue. His clearly political agenda at someone else's command is quite evident. The fire dept either needs more training and/ or better equipment. Two years have gone by for these people with no CO. All that it appears to be is that someone's nose got out of joint because his back wasn't scratched in the initial process. The ordinance seems very clear in its meaning. Mr. Olmstead objected vehemently to it initially then changed his position at the last board meeting even after the Fire Chief kept repeating the same old song about safety and the "gravel/ gurney story". I find his credibility to be in question and his tactics abhorring. This charade should stop now and someone should look into the Chief's health as it may be time for this ole horse to be put out to pasture if he wasn't put up to do it. This is what's wrong with this country today. And for the Chief and Marco pols to think that they are going to rewrite the State's fire code requirements and laws is and absolute waste of time. Just end this now. I do thank the board for not wasting any more time and voting with some common sense ( all but one of course ). I pray the rest of the process will quickly approve of their driveway and waste their gov't time on some other unecessary unscratched back project.
