Letter to the Editor: Needs attention

I have noticed for weeks now that the empty lot property between Ehlen Floor Covering on Bald Eagle Drive and The Bargain Basket has not been maintained for weeks, if not months.

I believe there are penalties for homeowners with this infraction. Are certain firms exempt from his policy?

That area on Bald Eagle needs a haircut.

Hey! I do not believe there is a specific ordinance, but there is a flagpole lying in the right of way at Plummer Park since December. Imagine, all the diatribes by city directors as to the importance of safety, yet can place a flagpole on its side and simply do nothing.

This city is now showing the effects of a city manager that has now checked out. Just listen the last budget subcommittee.


Thank god we have elected council members who understand the importance of goals and objectives (establish priorities). I recommend all readers of these comments to review the last budget subcommittee especially the challenge by Mr. Honig to Mr. Riviere.

THANK YOU! Mr. Honig, Mr. Honecker and Mr. Petricca.

You have to respect the government priority list:

3. Marriott
4. Marriott

You have to respect the executive government priority list:

1. Beach patrol

You have to respect the self-proclaimed government priority list MICA):

1. Putt-Putt
2. Putt-Putt
3. Putt-Putt
4. Putt-Putt
5. Putt-Putt

You have not to respect the priority list of the people:

1. Beautiful Marco Island
2. Beautiful Marco Island
3. Beautiful Marco Island
4. Beautiful Marco Island
5. Beautiful Marco Island

Konfuzius says:

If the priority list of the government, executive government or self-proclaimed government (MICA) is not matching the priority list of the people the government priority list has to change. The people are always right! Right!
