I understand that Lakewood Ranch is refusing to take County funds to build a library because they don't want any other County residents to use it? Why is Lakewood Ranch doing that? Are they better than the rest of the County?
Fortunately the County has said no to their selfishness and told them that County libraries are open to all. 3 weeks ago
This is a governmental catastrophe! People are going to walk away from their houses and no one will be able to afford to buy them. The state of Florida apparently doesn't care as the governor is missing in action on any involvement, and our allege representatives in Congress are, as usual, asleep at the wheel.
How are the retired people who bought their houses twenty or thirty years ago, paid them off, and are living on a fixed income, going to pay five time the insurance they have been paying. Everybody already knows that the insurance companies control the state house by "buying"(contributing to the re-election of) their (our ?) representatives so the state gives them anything they want like they did for Duke Energy.
But this, this is a disgraceful even coming from Congress. What are the rules for impeachment?10 months ago
Activities like this are the reason that people are generally against approving the homosexual agendas. Throwing insulting and illegal acts into other people's faces will not generate support.10 months ago
So the answer is tax the poor people from coming to the island and off the island. That is what it is, a tax. More exclusionary activity from the people with all the money.
Why not leave it like it is and let nature take it's course. It's a resort island, there is always going to be a lot of traffic and parking issues. When it gets really bad people won't come as much and you will get the traffic reduction you want..
With this plan the island will be hiring a whole new paid workforce, with benefits of course, to police the parking areas, ticket the miscreants, and tow scofflaws. That, will be great for the local businesses, angry customers, parking validations, and less business. The police will have enough to do without becoming Meter Maids.
Ol' Carmel really ought to re-think this. It's just creating more costs, problems, and infrastructure.
Maybe the housing amendments should have been adopted, addressing EXACTLY these issues??????????????????
