Here’s The Scoop … LBTS Commission Round Table … 12/7/09 … Round And Round We Go …

THAT $980,000 BURNING A HOLE IN SOMEONE’S POCKET …

ROUND TABLE- 12/7/09-5:30 PM -JARVIS HALL-PUBLIC INVITED-TELEVISED-ONLINE …

Dear Readers …Round and round we go and where this Oriana “million” goes…nobody knows!… But a certain Vice Mayor in need of some positive P.R. in the waning days of his first and last term as an elected official wants those buckaroos blasted out of the bank…and put in the medians at the south end of El Mar Drive….He’s doing a mini-mea culpa to MPSC Vice Chair Sandra Booth…the very same woman he skewered and slighted repeatedly throughout the past 2 years… Lamely he’s trying to make political points…But…it’s too little too late to remove the tainted Furth- orchestrated nastiness toward Mrs. Booth…and too much money to be thrown in to seal the deal…and try to salvage his savageness!…

On the next night’s agenda the very same Vice Mayor McIntee has put on new business item a. “Discussion ad/or action reference: El Mar Drive Project . 1.) To move forward with appropriating the $980,000 needed for the El Mar Drive Streetscape Project.2.) Commission approval of conceptual design of El Mar Drive. RFP process to begin by Ocampo & Assoc.”

BC- First…This is the same Vice Mayor that gave Comm. Dodd what-for when he put an item on the next agenda following a round table…McIntee said that was an agreed to no-no!…They are not allowed to discuss what’s on the next agenda…So the meeting on the 7th  is about the McIntee item on the 8th!…Which one is going south?…Or new majority rules…pun intended!……

Second…McIntee -Furth pal MaryAnn Wardlaw came to the podium to say the committee was not working with all the information …

Third….The Town Manager was never held accountable for her and her staff’s ineptness for well over a year! The Town Atty. in answering Comm. Clottey on her contact with Birute’s new BFF Mr. Oliver to verify the Oriana monies could be used for more than just the sound end…said she [Atty.] did not need to due to the very same Town staff giving her the information in less than 2 weeks!

Fourth… Did we pay for renderings…yeah…will it be the first time….nah….should it be the last time…putting the cart before the horse due to substandard backup materials…You bet!….Just add em’  to the “shelves of plans” from bygone years…

Fifth…There is precedence for holding off any major decisions to the new commission coming onto the dais with a few months left…Who led that decision…none other than man with burning hole in his pocket…Vice Mayor McIntee …always ready to spend , spend, spend the taxpayer’s  money…just take a look at the VFD…(prev. post)!

Tell your commissioners hold onto the million…til March!…

more to come….
