Here’s The Scoop … LBTS Taxpayers … Do You Know Where Your Tax Dollars Are? … Part 1 …

SITTING IN FRONT OF THE FURTH MOTEL … ON EL MAR DRIVE …

Dear Readers …we hear many taxpayers are understandably mystified with the fact that they paid $65,000 dollars over the past years for the Coral Reef Project and it appears not out in the ocean but in front of Marc and Cristie Furth’s motel as of this morning!… It sure looks like a “float” sitting there ….We also hear people were upset that the Furths are preparing to use it in the July 4th parade and to walk with their CIC  members around it ….. Whoaaaa… That money came from all the taxpayers…whether it reached its final destination or not… It’s not a CIC PAC funded program…WOW!… The Commission were appalled that the Town owned boat the fire department had sitting at their dock sunk…and now this is sitting out on the Furth’s backout parking….So let’s see, something happens to it there and who is responsible?… Where’s code enforcement as well as the Town on this one?… We’ve  heard no one informed the Mayor who is chairing the July 4th festivities it would be in the parade…Why not?…And wouldn’t the Town need to know that as well and approve with the Commission?… This project we’re  now hearing  is in need of another $15,000 to complete it…Hmmm….so where did the $65,000 go?… Dr. Goreau http://www.globalcoral.org/ was just in the area on May 19th…(prev. post-heresthescooponline.com)…. Wouldn’t you think if the project was short on funds the backers would have had the Dr. make a “house call” to the Commission to explain what was needed …. OOPS!….

The CIC sent an e-mail this week to their shrinking membership ……
“Dear CIC Member,

The CIC will proudly be present in the 4th of July parade with a decorated T-tops TransAm, reminding
the entire Town the CIC remains very active and involved!

Also, our next CIC meeting is on *Wednesday evening, July 7th* at the Surf Club, 2 Palm Ave (Palm
and El Mar), at 7:00pm. Hope to see you there!

We will be reviewing our plans for an E-newsletter and mail-out newsletter, discussing updates and
suggestions for the CIC website as well as other items.

Sincerely,

Your CIC Board of Directors”

Any tie in with the Reef Project in the parade?…

Looks like it’s time for the Town Administration and Code Enforcement to put the brakes on this float if they have not done so by this time of night…..

Any extra funds should not come until there has been a full accounting of funds used thus far…and a presentation spelling out the particulars of additional taxpayer dollars…

While we are at it..whatever happened to the summertime charettes with the Furth’s pals for the marine park?.. We know there was no grant funding …..but why not the pre-meetings as discussed if it should be go forth ….or is it dead in the water?…

more to come…
