Written on None:

Bill, I'm sure the Marco city council will still want to give you another bonus.

Written on Marco weighing special assessment to pay for fire services:

Maybe a good idea to have the county take back police and fire. I don't feel any more safe or secure now than before cityhood. In fact with all this talk of assesments and taxes could be a little less secure in the pocket book.....

Written on Industry downturn leads to more job seekers at Career and Service centers:

I agree if the crackdown on fake S/S numbers is successful then the huge void (which is now filled with illegal workers)would have to be filled. I can tell you there are plenty of experenced workers and fine craftsmen that have been displaced over the last five years alone that will happily fill the void. Sure wages will have to go up but the quality of the work and pride in craftmanship will rise much higher.

Written on As deadline draws near for Marco anchoring case, tension finds unlikely target:

Only a few boats have ever parked near our waterway over the years. Never for very long and never any problems. Note to city: please don't spend any more money or time on this. If this bulls---t Marco Waterway Organization wants to pay for it then let them not us!

Written on Marco Island Yacht Club returns to drawing board:

Bryan Milk is The city planner...didn't they hire anyone when the last guy left??? Lackluster would be a complement to Milk. Anyhow, I agree the dock proposal is just to big...unless they want to donate a mil or so then I say anything goes....right???

Written on Market Update: What is the latest on Marco’s condo market?:

Realtors..a nessary evil I quess. I never trust them to tell me when to buy or sell,though. You really have to go by your own gut because their's my be a little yellow.....

Written on Letter: Broken promises:

We also live in California and Florida. On Marco part and full time since 99 and have been watching projects go to Quality Enterprises ever since. Why....not for quality thats for sure. Someone may want to ask the city planner......is it the lowest bid or some sort of sweethart deal???

Written on View from above: Impressive span’s days are likely numbered:

They have allready spent 1 million on a "study" for a toll. You know what they say..."Build it and they will come" (the toll booths)

Written on Rotarians get a glimpse at illegal immigration:

You aint seen nothin yet. Take a look at California....yes, this is the future for Florida if this problem is not addressed.

Written on Popular Marco shopping plaza still not in compliance with city code:

I hope Bill does not get another bonus this year.

Written on Island update: What’s new with the Madeira beach access point?:

Its a path for gods sake, why do we have to pave it in gold. use the money for additional parking. The city planner screwed this up from the start with out giving any consideration to this path (we knew would be there) when designing the collier Blvd project. Put a concrete sidewalk in for 30K and a couple park benches...A no-brainer you would think.

Written on Marriott timeshare proposal hits snag:

The Marriott--allways wanting to go higher with more density than codes allow. Note to city council: Just say no for once, force them to build a normal size building within the boundries of current code.

Written on Should the city council consider a referendum that would cap all sewer assessments at $10,000? :

First, Pay your full assesment if you are not already hooked up to the system--don't make the rest of us pay your share. Second it will never be less expensive to build than it is today. Third, your property will be more valuable as a result of this. Don't make everyone else pay for your own riches. Think about it........ were is the rest of the money going to come from? Right, higher taxes on all of us!

Written on Letter: New light poles marred by scratches:

Yea, Ive noticed alot of sloppy work on this project also. Is'nt anyone inspecting this?

Written on Colombo upset when workers laid flag on ground:

I think it is O.K. to lay the Mexican flag on the ground, they just don't know any better.......

Written on City approves asbestos settlement; federal lawsuit by CARES canceled out:

Sounds like Quality Enterprises is finally stepping up to the plate.....

Written on Letter: Tucker's 'hoax' misled island residents:

can't we all just get along???? Geezzz

Written on Letter: Is contractor really paying for cleanup?:

I have to agree more with Mr. Hall. If I remember correctly the city paid for the total initial cleanup. What Ms. Douglas means by associated expenses does not say much. The last I heard the city works for us.....not damage control for Quality Enterprises.

Written on New beach access gets the green light :

We quit giving MICA our money several years ago. Sad but we are not in agreement with most of what MICA stands for and does with all that money it collects. All possible paths should be open to all....period.
