I am extremely pleased that the City was not fined and that Quality Enterprises was and that QE effectively pleaded guilty to the six counts of violating the Clean Air Act that the EPA finally charged them with. They accepted the fine (although I think it should have been MUCH larger) and whether or not they admitted guilt during the negotiations with the EPA is incidental. Should anyone care to read the depositions taken by C.A.R.E.S., Inc. in this case, they will find that QE had already admitted to being guilty of the first five counts back in 2006. It took another 3 1/2 years and the continual prodding of Dr. Mario Sanchez to force this issue to a conclusion. I thank him for that! I hope Marco's Public Utilities Department has learned from this and will disqualify Quality Enterprises from ever doing work on Marco Island again.
