The new city manager should interview the current police officers also. He will discover many more are about to leave.
Come on Eagle, you don't have spell check? oen sattioned ;tiems; taht;bnetween;wil;
Don't blame it on Fay Biles either!
What is a CAoch?
Leave the Bargain Basket out of this mess!!
Lewis is trying to make a name for himself from 2 storage companies who hired him but cannot pay him. Now they want the City to foot the bill. The SAD thing is - the taxpayers will end up paying his legal fees.
I have a license but I don't own a car...but I'm building one in MY garage in a residential zone. Also have a gun range for personal use in MY garage in a residential zone. But I don't sell no guns. Wonder if the neighbors will report me. Then Code Enforcement will get me!
Where will the money come from to build a boat lift? Next they'll need to build a shelter for THE boat and give raises to all the operators!! Murphy's Millions - more to come. I hope council turn them down.
This scenario was just played out in another City....Council members calling each other and City Manager to discuss firing of a director - the result = State Attorney investigation, councilor removed by Governor and fined in court. Someone needs to call in the FDLE or State Atty to investigate the corrupt Marco Island!!
A new community center that will benefit the ENTIRE Island for $2.2M - referendum required; OR $4M renovation of the fire suite to benefit 40 employees - no referendum needed..... Council weigh the logic.
The good thing about the MIPD and the MIFD is that they service both their supporters and opponents.
Yes Mr Adams, you're right to question why Duane Thomas was not prosecuted - think he is above the law. Now that's selective enforcement by the City. Hope that's not the end of it....
Checked the agenda last week and a certain DT marine contractor was on the list for illegal dumping and public safety, he was not prosecuted, wonder why??? Watched the hearing and the code supervisor when asked about them stated he was comp LIED!! Something fishy about this one. Eagle, where is your investigative reporter? Please dig into this one.
Heard one of the code officers quit after the previous code board meeting! Wonder why....???
Yeah - you want to treat me like a criminal if I park across the sidewalk in front of MY house!! I'm gonna rent my house to a bunch of boys from da 'hood. Then Code enforcement will target it because of calls from whining neighbors.
Seems to be a pattern here:1.Fire on Gulfport Ct, 2 mins from fire station - TOTAL LOSS!2. Man drowning at Mackle Park, 2 mins from fire station - HE DIED.Makes the best fire department on the Island; just reward them with a lucrative contract, half million dollar boat, and renovation of the RESORT.
Mmmm..... Marco Island a coastal community, no building codes.. homeowner does what he wants to.. Hurricane comes in - total destruction.. Blame the building inspectors like in Punta Gorda for the devastation! Not the homeowner's responsibility to get licensed contractors to follow the standards.
Go Jensen Beach!
Paul, you're right! A lot of unhappy people on Marco Island for sure. I come across them everyday. Wish you would have stuck it out, but family comes first and that's what makes you happy, not money - as can be seen by the unhappiness on the Island. Life is what you make it.
One universal qualification for politrickians is that of being a liar.
The top brass of the city should volunteer their time monthly on a couple of cul-de-sacs cleaning, trimming, mulching, planting and weeding....... then they will start looking better. Save some money also.
typical of a marco island old f art! rather than doing something constructive and picking them up, he goes around complaining to everyone. he also took pics of the flags in place in the mulch, no mention about those.
Mr DT has created more code violations in the city than anyone else with the trash and junk left behind on the staging lots and oil spills from his sunken barges. Great picture from behind that fence!
