Well, for the vast majority of lots used to "cure" or stage panels for sea walls, there have been NO problems. Marco Island was built as a waterfront community consisting of canals and bays that are contained by reinforced cement sea walls. There are hundreds of miles of them and they are now failing after 40 + years since their installation.
This island infrastructure (unlike roads) is required to be maintained/replaced by lot owners at their expense.
It is a little disturbing when some councilors who do not have to bear this sea wall responsibility/expense because they live inland can all of a sudden stop all permitting (even if for only 30 days)because of this incident in which one councilor was injured.
What on earth were they thinking in halting the issuance of permits? Someone said at the council meeting it was like "throwing the baby out with the bath water".
