August8: Thanks for your opinion, but no- this issue is not a dead topic. This is the beginning of a thorough investigation into the over spending and mis-management of island entities, such as the police department. Many islanders will not be satisfied until we know that government spending is under control.
I, for one, will not sit here and continue to pay taxes for a council that continues to sit back and support a department tainted by poor management and wasteful spending. We see lawsuit after lawsuit, officer firings, and questionable arrests- all without SOME KIND of investigation?
Shall we just sit back and watch as even more money is spent on top of the department's $4+ million budget to defend itself from lawsuits and settlements?
We need change and we need guidance. If the current management can not run an effective police department, we will use our democratic power to vote for people who can and will make necessary changes. If that change is the elimination of the Marco Island Police Department, so be it.
