An email soliciting donations circulated by the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation stated,"We need $36,000 per year the cover just the cost of leasing and maintaining the property known as Tract K."
One must ask just who is the source of that figure. One would assume there would not be a plea for funds if there is not a ready to be signed lease agreement. Yet the city is once again discussing the purchase of Tract K.
Add to the mixed messages the fact that while Dennis Thompson, in his advisory capacity, has nixed the idea of a school on Tract K, the fate of Tract K is in the hands of the School Board, not the outgoing Superintendent.
Inarguably, the School Board must operate under the Florida Department of Education Statutes not according to any special interests. One can therefore assume that their inaction signals a professional commitment to due consideration, as well it should. Ergo, the debate goes on with only one certainty . . . Everyone will not be happy.
