There seems to be declining attention to the quality of life on Marco. This is an example. No big deal, I guess, but add it to many other small things and we have an Island whose appearance has seemingly changed for the worse in the past few years. Residents seems less and less important rating behind business & tourists. This also goes for the the established rules which protect our Island resident way of living - for which we all pay so dearly.
It seems to me that the effectiveness of our Code Enforcement is in decline and I don't think it's their fault. I'm not sure if this is a matter of budget cuts, more manpower or just a simple willingness to maintain a quality of life standard. This seem weird since the Island Authorities seems to be throwing around a lot of money these days.
I'm all for aggressive, consistent and equal enforcement of codes relating to our quality of life. After all, they were there when I moved here so there's no surprise. You know the Bronx NYC has beaches too! Keep going in this direction and we'll be living in the Bronx with palm trees!
