Ajm3s Thank you!
I believe this is a great time to accomplish such a venture and I think the people of the region, Marco Island, Isles of Capri and Goodland should push for consolidation.
Just imagine how much good this could do. Regionalize the water plant, the Public Works Dept. Wastewater plant, Building, Planning, Zoning, Oridance/Code enforcement. It is endless.
The paramaters are simple create a "region" What better than the three cities that are already in the same County? That once were run by the same County? That border each other by land and water.
Create a Beach Patrol inclusive of Lifeguards and First Aid which I see is desperately needed right on the beach. Let the region collect and spend the tax dollars that otherwise would be paid as individual Cities.
Dismantle MICA, Keep the Deed restrictions permanent and managed by the Region Building and planning Authority.
Have Regional EMS and Advanced Life Support with full coverage for the Region. Hire qualified long term people not transplants looking to double dip the system for another pension. Give preference to younger candiates who grew up and trained in the area and are willing to commit to the profession.
The region could have the best equipment as costs would again be spread across the Region.
I find it puzzling the Chief of Police is writing the newspaper. For what? To convince the Taxpayers of Marco Island things are fine. They may be but it could be great, and example of the future, not just kick the can down the road.
August8, we rarely agree on anything but I believe Marco Island Police and Fire should have merged long time ago. The time is now for a start to a broader better future for this Region.
Like I said, many ego's need to be overcome to move forward with such a plan. The best part is it is a winner for both the employees and also the Taxpayers of the three areas.
Just emagine how good it could really be.
