Anyone Surprised?

Dear Editor,

A few days ago I was shown a draft “yellow sheet” used for city council meetings, which supposedly was sent to a Marco Island City Councilor regarding the expediting of two more sewer districts (Lamplighter and Sheffield) of the STRP program at the July 16 “called” meeting of the city council. At first, I thought it might possibly be a fake.

Having just received an on-line copy of the agenda for the 16th where, in fact, this item is on the agenda, I must wonder why only certain councilors are given advance knowledge of upcoming agenda items; others not. I recently complained to City Manager Bill Moss about this very issue regarding the need for a “called” meeting to deal with beach vegetation for July 16. I never received a final response to several email exchanges.

I, personally, am fed up with the obvious machinations of this administration (look at the tape of the June 18 council meeting regarding extension of the election date to November, 2008; if you don’t think that was a “set-up” then you really were born yesterday).

Just to put those in this administration on notice, I will call for a “forensic” audit when the guard changes this February. Committing money that the city does not have, in my opinion, is not only being fiscally irresponsible, but may be downright illegal.

Chuck Kiester
Marco Island City Councilor

  • A “forensic” audit is a great idea. Back in the 70's we had a similar situation in Long Island NY.
    Sewers were also a point of contention there. To make a long story short, most of the politicians that pushed for that project wound up serving jail time for various corruption violations.

    Let's see what happems here.
