Old Marco Man: You obviously have no idea about what it takes to run a City. There are areas where we could eliminate some spending, but when you compare our City Budget to other cities with the same size and infrastructure, we are not out of line.
If you have specific suggestions, you are aklways encouraged to present them or send them to City Council for consideration. But remember, there are 18,000 full time residents of which 13000 are registered voters and everyone has a say in how the Island is run. The Council has 7 (seven) members who represent all of us. And one of the three rfecent Council victors was victorious by 185 votes or 93 residents. The Island is not run for your apporval or liking, but rather for all of us.I have sent a money saving suggestion to Council. I suggest that we do not need a Police Chief and a Fire Chief. An island our size could operate with a Director of Public Safety who would oversee both the Police and Fire. Saves a salary and a pension.Ed Issler
