Jim, if you are going to continue digging up old bones concerning beach access I suggest you get your facts straight. The agreement to deed the 33 acres at Tiger Tail Beach to Collier County was strictly between Deltona and the County. MICA did not attend the meeting or make any recommendations. Deltona approached Collier to accept the beach property to satisfy the County regulation mandating beach access at different intervals. The County happily accepted the offer and everyone agreed that the County got a very good deal. MICA was still in an infant state and was not involved in the transaction what so ever. Mr. Herb Savage represented Deltona at the County Board meeting. Herb has explained the true facts on two occasions, one being at a meeting of the Marco City Council. I have read the letter addressed to you from the Florida Attorney General that made it very clear that he looked into your allegations and found them to be with out merit. They also referred you back to the Collier County Attorney who also made it very clear you were barking up the wrong tree. Yes, MICA does charge a fee for membership. And the proceeds are used to maintain and improve the beach and maintain a disaster fun for hurricane damage. The issue of MICA charging a membership fee has been litigated twice and both times the courts have ruled MICA has the right and that it makes sense since upkeep costs are on going. MICA also established a "Members Discount Program" that allows members to receive savings many time more then the cost of the membership. It is also a very successful program to encourage members to "Shop Marco First." I was present in the MICA office a few years back when you came in to apply for a life guard position at Residents Beach. At that time, in front of others,you could not say enough kind and wonderful things about MICA. When you were informed that you did not make the cut you started this vendetta against MICA and MICA members. The entire story, with all the true facts, has been printed in the local newspapers and in the "MICAWAVE." I suggest you, and any interested members, ask MICA to provide you with the article and learn how preposterous and false your claims are.
