The City needs to start posting the Parks and Rec's Committee agendas (not just the dates of meetings), meeting minutes and related documents in full on the City website. There is a webpage devoted to this: (http://www.cityofmarcoisland.com/inde... ) but as City Staff Liaison, Bryan Milk has not followed through. He needs to make the proceedings more transparent.
Since Mr. Milk is the Staff Liaison for 3 major advisory committees/boards (Beautification-now pushing for replacing rocks in swales with sod, Parks and Recs now pushing a huge expansion with potential public/private business deals, and the Planning Board, in addition his position as Community Services Director), he has huge power to influence and therefore, huge responsibility to keep the public informed about the proceedings. This may help reduce tensions by keeping the public in the loop and provide more oversight to his alarmingly expanding and apparently unchecked roles.
In fact, the minutes, agendas and related documents from all committee/board meetings should be posted for the public welfare.
The City Council could easily request the City Manager provide this service to the public. Presumably, in compliance with Florida's Sunshine laws, agendas are being publicly posted in advance and minutes are being recorded so timely uploading them to the website should not be a burden.
