MARCO ISLAND — “After more than six months, “red shirt” representatives from Olde Marco won’t sit at City Council meetings and speak their minds during public comment”.“Earlier, city staff discovered 62 Collier Boulevard streetlights in storage. Those will be used on Bald Eagle Drive in Olde Marco. Labor for removal of industrial lights and replacement with the shorter marine-style lampposts will cost $800 per fixture or $55,800 for the project. The city will receive a credit of $10,000 from the installer for the earlier unfinished project.”Looks like a Light Bulb Lit Up in the heads of the Council, and another one Lit Up in the City Staff who “discovered” 62 Lights in storage. (sound’s like the same story about the “discovery” of the missing 4 million bucks) All this leads me to one conclusion: The people running this City are not very BRIGHT.The money being wasted on this screw up should come out of the City Staff salary, not my pocket.
