Here’s The Scoop

Commission meeting 5/13/08

Friday Night Jazz on the Square….

Which is it?….

Was the Town Administration in receipt of documents after they made inquiries of the state…for permits….and kept mum?

Did the Town Administration….not let this patron of the town know the reason he was not getting an extension?

Dave Gatsby …at the podium remarked that he was made aware of the requirements that day….

he explained how the permit worked in the past…extensions… not… new permits…and following the protocol in place since its inception… thinking it was still appropriate….

BCbythesea has also learned that another restaurant was sent a fax with the same information during the day (5/13/08)…with the same “new” town requirements…dated 4/8/08!

Black and White…administrating at its worst!…. done with “gloating” from the Administration is how many have described what they observed last night….. to BCbythesea ….today!

Fort Lauderdale….finds the “gray area”….to deal with the “open container” laws….as does other coastal towns …trying to make their town a destination of tourists and patrons….in these hard economic times…

enacting these Black and White procedures…with no offer of compromise… no help in the process…will send all our visitors scrambling their way….

Dave will meet with the the proper authorities to see if the permit is defined as temporary or permanent and make a decision following this meeting set for next week….

BCbythesea…hopes that a solution can be found within a higher level of government….to remedy the situation…with subjective terminology that allows the “gold standard” of Friday night special events in LBTS…to carry on….
