"By defeating a motion to vote on the proposed Community Center they made it clear that Marco Islanders are sick and tired of the wasteful spending that was the norm under previous administrations."
I too was impressed, but I did not hear one comment regarding the commitment made during the campaign season by Mr. Honecker and Mr. Petricca to bring the Community Center proposal to a referendum. The motions initially presented by Mr. Magel and Mr. Honig were quite interesting given their experience in management. I was dumbfounded as to Mr. Honig's motion based on the need to show a commitment to the citizens by committing to a review of a single proposal. In my world of project management, you have only committed to a building specification that was suggested by members outside of city management which led to cost reduction and construction time. Normally, the next process is obtaining competitive bids to this new set of specifications.
So, no discussion of an open bid process from competing vendors, no meaningful discussion of funding or its impact on funding and budget, and again, no public input or consideration. So again, we see the same "rush" approach we saw on other contentious issues of the past, that "need" to be decided during the summer months while a good portion of citizens are off island.
