Written on Airboats won't be part of Everglades much longer:

While there at it how about banning those smelly, noisy SEA DOOOS on Marco beaches. There so annoying!

Written on Marco Island City Council approves policy decisions that will shape water rate ordinance:

Wouldn't it just be easier to allow everyone to have a sub meter for lawn irrigation. What is wrong with these people?

in response to TheCoon:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Not quite sure what Marcoislandwomen meant, but tried Stilts the other night. Very overpriced and the food was not very good at all. Doesn't compare to the Marriot, and the drinks were terrible. We try to patronize our islands restaurants, but it gets tougher every day.

Written on Midnight munchies? Where to go on Marco Island:

I have to admit, Marco really has no good restaurants here. Have not been able to find a good steak yet. Give us an Outback or Longhorn.

Written on Marco gets permission to allow watering three days a week, not two :

Not only that, but for every gallon of water that goes on your yard your also paying for it to go down the sewer.. And it's NOT!!! WE NEED SUB METERS CITY COUNCIL! Let them know Marco residents..

Written on Marcophiles: Are we taking a bath on water rates?:

We need sub meters on Marco island! We should not have to pay sewer charges on water we use to irrigate our lawns and wash our cars!!!
SUB METERS, SUB METERS SUB METERS!!!!!!!
SPEAK UP PEOPLE, IT WILL SAVE US THOUSANDS!!

Written on Utility rate hike proposals as high as 50 percent continue for Marco Island customers:

I looked in to other cities and counties around the country, and almost all have a sub meter system. Many people hook up their hose connections for watering, car washing, pool filling, sprinkler systems etc. All of which does not go down the sewer. This can save a condo, or homeowner hundreds if not thousands of dollars annually. A sub meter is a very easy installation, and a remote meter reading device can be installed right on your house for the city to read. This needs to be looked into by the council that is supposedly looking out for our interests.. We should not be charged sewer charges for water that is not going down the sewer nor being processed at the plant. I would be more than willing to pay a plumber, and any necessary permit and inspection fees for this device. Please urge our council to look into this!!

Written on Utility rate hike proposals as high as 50 percent continue for Marco Island customers:

Question? Now that I am on city sewer, can a sub meter be installed on my lawn sprinkler system so I do not have to pay sewer charges on water that does not go down the city sewer??

Written on POLL: Parking tickets at home tick off some Island residents :

Well said Jaguar, and slowsky! Very well done Marco island police.. Keep it up. It's great to have them on the island!!

Written on POLL: Parking tickets at home tick off some Island residents :

How about the people with the unsightly messy rocks in their swales. They all use them as parking lots, and the rocks are always in the road. I never see their vehicals with tickets on them!

Written on Islanders save hundreds to thousands each on sewer project rebid:

How about rebidding the connection costs and septic tank abandonment costs to homeowners also? This would also be a good thing for the city to push.

Written on Eagle to charge at newsstands :

Not sure whats going on, but the website is just as bad as the paper lately.

Written on Marco Island teachers take a stand:

These teachers need to stop whineing about their GREAT jobs. There really part time baby sitters that get summers off, spring break, winter break, professional days, and to many other holidays to list off. Not to mention the wonderful benefits package. Try getting a job in the real world!!

Written on Bulldog mix picked up:

Whats the law on the island for people who walk their dogs, and let them go to the bathroom on vacant lots and peoples yards?? It's happening everywhere..

Written on Suspect arrested in hit-and-run:

AAAmen Barfieldfly!!

Written on Suspect arrested in hit-and-run:
