Not sure why the Eagle wrote a second article on this subject and eliminated the postings from the first. I think my post to the first article still applies and hope Coucil will stop yet another spending spree that is related to the water/sewer utility. My original post:
"With all due respect (to Mr. Murphy), isn't the entire concept of "mutual aid" intended for one fire department to assist another when there is a need for equipment sharing and fire suppression support? If there was a fire and, three trucks were used to pump water to the fire, doesn't Isle of Capri and E. Naples send equipment over to support Marco should another incident happen? Mutual aid is an intentionally developed system so evuery fire department doesn't have to provide staff and& equipment to support every hypothetical situation considered.
As AJM has noted, for those homes living outside the 1,0000 foot distance, there is home owners insurance one is paying for. (I assume those homes pay a higher rate and knew of the distance to hydrants since that is a question on the insurance application form)
I suspect some of these unserved homes are in areas where the STRP construction has already been completed, missing the opportunity for project synergy.
Mr. Trotter correctly points out that this project was not on the table when the millage rate was discussed.
Please stop the sky is falling mentality and make a long range plan that fits within the budget process."
