Dear Editor: I respectfully disagree with this decision by our City Manager regarding Building Inspectors. The citizens living on Marco Island voted, long before Mr./Dr. Riviere was in his position, to become a City. Not one half a City, not 95% a City, but a City with it's own City services. If the City Manager saw a problem with budgets and manpower, the fees could have been raised to cover the difference, no matter how much. Or, maybe a manpower reduction would have been appropriate, especially given the fact that there does not seem to be an issue of travel time, now that the tasks will be covered from Naples.This is a VERY serious breach of the mandate that was given to City Leaders on what we define as a "City" !!!I am very disappointed. I suggest we do the same with the City Manager position and let Mr. Moss conduct all City Manager day to day business for both Marco Island and Naples. We will call him a County Manager and pay him an incremental increase to cover the extra work. This will save much more money and would seem to not create much of a backlog.The City Manager has chosen to rectify a financial issue by redefining the meaning of a City to all of it's residents. Is this even allowed by Charter ??Ed Issler
