Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …

February 3, 2010 by Barbara

UNILATERAL DECISION MADE AGAIN?…

The Town Manager has struck again… The Chamber will get a new roof after all …a metal roof ..for somewhere in the neighborhood of $15,000!… The Town Manager according to the Town purchasing manual is allowed to make purchases up to 15,000 without running it by the Commission…BUT… why would she do it with an item like this?…We did not see any RFP or ITB for the roof…and to choose a metal roof for this historic building without asking input from the Commission or the Chamber …really says it all…once again… Time for her to go!…

Hello,
My girlfriend and I will be in the LBTS area from Feb. 12-15/10 and last year we went to a street dance on the Friday night and had a blast. We were wondering if you still have the street dances?? We are so looking forward to it…

Thanks for your help,
Have a great day.

WILL IT BE A MARCH “SURPRISE”?….

So will Commissioner Jim “He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone and his Campaign Manager Marc Furth be bringing the voters a March surprise with the unveiling of their clock for the Pavilion…1 year later?… This writer wanted to donate a clock and was summarily shut down because the source of the donation was “The Chief Blogger” …Jimmy-boy took it on…and after the Commission voted for it….some months later the big unveil…and then it disappeared…No clock…no $1000….no discussion….zip … sort of like the Off-site warehouse”…OOPS!…

……………………….

THANKS COMMISSIONER CLOTTEY + COMMISSIONER SILVERSTONE ….

This writer now owns the domain name “THECHIEFBLOGGER.COM”….Look for the unveiling after March 9, 2010~…

DOES MOE KNOW?…..

Does Moe know that when Commissioner Silverstone- Candidate Joe Couriel- Candidate Marjorie Evans go to the condos they bash Jerry?…We hear Mayoral Candidate Joe Couriel is doing a 180 from his prior Jarvis Hall assertions of “McIntee is God”…as he runs for the center seat…He bashes Jerry McIntee…blaming Jerry for the bad behavior on the dais… saying HE  (JC) would have shut him up…as Jimmy and Marjorie nod in agreement!… We hear  Joe has been busy telling voters HE (JC) will throw people out of the hall without a warning…HE (JC) is allowed to do that as Mayor…as Jimmy and Marjorie nod their heads in agreement… Watch out for Mayor Couriel and the “Bobblehead” commissioners… Talk about a campaign strategy…coming out of Town Hall East…BUT does Moe know?…OUCH!…

……………………………..

LIGHTS OUT ….

Another March…another “lights out” on El Mar Drive and in the El Prado parking lot!…. The Manager was responsible for the El Prado parking lot fixtures…it was she who dropped the ball…Here we are once again facing months of darkness with no end in sight…(pun intended.)..A turtle lighting workshop is scheduled in Jarvis Hall Feb 10, 2010 1-3 pm…open to the public…Voice your concerns…This writer and Commissioner Dodd did last year…all to no avail… Forget the unnecessary Feb 11, 2010 TM Colon “forum” for special events and street closures… This is the meeting that calls for standing room only to finally shine some light on the problem!…(pun intended)…

CHECK YOUR MAILBOX TODAY?…

Today voters received 2 postcards …one from Candidates Mayor Minnet-Scot Sasser- Chris Vincent that said  “The signs of the Times in Lauderdale -By-The-Sea…Here’s what we stand for protecting our Quaint Beachside Village * Fiscal Accountability and Transparency * Treating residents honestly and with respect”

Fro Candidate Silverstone-Couriel-Evans …a mailed postcard from the CIC-“Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s Promise Lies in the Bold Combination of  Tradition with Careful Planning for the Future”

BC- pretty funny the Candidates switched with ‘signs of the “Times” and  ‘careful planning for the”Future”!…

BC- Did anybody proof at Town Hall East?…”Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s Promise Lies”…OUCH!…Let the “Healing” begin!… March 9, 2010…
