Here’s The Scoop … Project LBTS … UPDATED…

WITH YOUR “HOST”  TOWN MANAGER ESTHER COLON…

Dear Readers… You’re either in or you’re out here in LBTS…depending on the mood of the Town Manager…This “season”… If you live in a residential/commercial property west of Town Hall you must have a commercial garbage can ….but if your name is Furth and you live in “Town Hall East” you can have one 96 gallon can for a residential (their living quarters are residential) /commercial property (motel)…which stirs up the “challengers”, the multi-family residences  and other small motels who have lined up their required “toters”…..The owners of these many properties are still reeling as the Town Manager continues to be obstinate by not putting in an addendum to the contract that would allow Choice to charge them for the “toters” they need rather than the Town imposed “toter” per dwelling!…The Town receives no revenue for the garbage pickup, so why no help from the Manager?… Because she’s the “Host” …

UPDATE… AND THEN THERE WERE 2!…Tonight on the way to workout…2 “toters” in front of “Town Hall East”..1st time!…And so fast after this was posted…Hmmmm…

Again in this new “season”… “Town Hall East” is allowed to leave a newspaper rack out in front of their motel (it’s also headquarters of the Mc-Furth BTSTimes) with no code enforcement from the Town…but in this week’s “show” comes the August Development Department backup that shows more new Town code “sweeps”……(Show me the money!)….one for “custom apparel” signage on Town stores  (we have been told that while it is a 2007 ordinance, it has never been a problem) another for addresses throughout town…and also for a “resolution” to allow two businesses to continue “encroachments existing on public property”…such as a table and chairs in a breezeway and a barrel of flowers on a sidewalk…other “contestants”  just removed their “encroaching” items…probably not ready for the “prime time” interaction with the “Host”…It appears this “edition” was written  and produced by the Vice Mayor from the September 3rd memo from the “Host”….to “Director McIntee”….

As posted in the 9/22/09 agenda, Athena, Village Grille and the Chamber had to jump through hoops to get their special permit packages in order…constant “rewrites”…but the Furths…and their “Agent”  Vice Mayor McIntee …went straight to the “in” pile……blank pages…and an old 2008 “manuscript”… and they could call it a day… Town Event don’t ya know… “A” rated ….”Director’s version”…

We’ve seen this before….in past “episodes”… with July 4th and the “fast tracked” procurements…the short notice posting of committee meetings…..and even the fireworks on the beach with appearances of other bids for “cover”……” Players with immunity”… We saw it with the concert series that Commissioner Clottey was in charge of…”the newest member of the “team”…We saw this with the “extra cash bonus” entryway signs in Bel Air…The drainage problem in front of the Vice Mayor’s house…(ultimately withdrawn, “sponsors” called for it? ) and we have seen it big time this “season” with who gets responses from the Town in a timely manner…through phone calls/ e-mail (made after the show is over at 11 pm from within Town  Hall)  and Public Records Requests…… no matter that the “studio heads” that write the rules for what the “reasonable” required time is (per Fl. state statute)……are included in the “contract”……

The “Host” is busy this season ….hogging all the “airtime”….speaking rudely to the “contestants” …and her “audience.”…both live and viewing from the comfort of their own home……….We’ve watched temper tantrums….and the constant demands of a real “Diva”…….complete with her “yes men”…”hangers on” and  “groupies”….it’s all so  unseemly… Many say she’s become just another “overpaid reality TV star” who got a little taste of power…and lots and lots of  press along with that big fat paycheck… and she’s destined to go where all those “Hosts” who came before her go, when the “ratings” drop and  their 15 minutes is up ……..March cancellations…in the big March network “sweeps”…..

But remember, viewers while you’re either in or you’re out in September, during  “Fall previews”……In March it’s a whole new season!…..

more to come….
