yes I have seen the discussions going on under the canopy of the gazebo--definetly not in the sunshine. perhaps they are questioning patrons on the merits of the revised Mackle Park building because we know they have to get feedback before voting -- no need for a referendum just multiple survey questions to the same group of people
The previous writters are correct. Mr Honig is spot on in suggesting less expensive alternative and seeking state or federal assistance when the bridge needs to be replaced. and then go with plain vanilla tructure. the other newbies on council seem more motivated to get citizen referendum approval for the stripped down new Mackle Park building through utility bill question that will exclude master metered condos.the feeling by some councilors that major business should not take place when the snowbirds are gone is faulty. the newspapers may be read online and citizen input then directed to councilors.
the elevated blood pressure for those who completely misunderstood coucilor honig is very revealing. he and magel and keister clearly stated the entire future of the Mackle Center had to pass 2 critical votes first the wording of the contract and the approval of money to pay for it. I believe they only wanted to have the city attorney review the proposed construction contract which would be brought back at a council meeting fully advertised for public input.the Public Referendum issue is interesting considering council is about to spend much more than the Mackle center on the Smokehouse Bridge without a referendum.
We should be thankful that Mr.Honig publically invited citizens to give input into the processof listing the priorities Council should establish for a potential manager.
councilor Honig has every right to be perplexed--first Batte gets the letter from the couny then does not share with rest of council,then the C.M. responds w/o council input. may or may not be something the city would entertain but at least get the facts
I do not recall this issue being discussed by our council. something this significant should have had full public discussion.
the Planning Board benefits from experience that comes with longevity.re-appointing Mr.Lazarus would provide that experience.
Paul is a well meaning fellow who is sincere in wanting to be the representative of the young people and their families. too bad he felt it necessary to step out at this time. of course his name is still on the ballot and he won't have to endure anymore forums.
every 2 years russ columbo beats his gums on his picks. many of us wait for this and go the opposite way
stef did a great job in reminding us to "dial-don't drive" call 911 in an emergency.can anyone tell me in what hole RayPray lives in?
once again a candidate mentions "special interest". who are these groups?
will one of the new candidates please tell me who "the special interest" are and what is meant when saying current council does not listen to the people--give examples.
