Former Editor/Real Estate Broker John MacMillan….seen standing in the parking lot….of the newly painted By The Sea Realty building up for sale……(Mc-FURTH BTSTimes…headquarters are at the Blueseas on El Mar)…

BYE BYE….WELCOME HOME….

The VFD office on Commercial is now empty….and the department is in their new digs…the LBTS Public Safety Complex on A1A…with trucks moving in last evening…

LIGHTS…CAMERA ….ACTION….

cameras are installed at the Public Safety Building…….aimed on the “Community Pool”…SHOWTIME!…

IT’S ALL IN THE INTERPRETATION….

When Commissioner Dodd made the direction to Town staff that he wanted  “WELCOME” added to the flagpole bases…he thought the staff understood it was in ADDITION to the Town seal…Commissioner Silverstone…added “TO” to the ADDITION of “welcome”…….and Comm. Dodd told staff he would not need to see it finalized he thought it was a “given” they were on the same page….WRONG!…

When the flagpole bases were wrapped with the new design…the questions came from residents…and Commissioners…HUH?…what happened to the “welcome to”?…Turns out the “TOWN OF”…Lauderdale-By-The-Sea was changed to…”WELCOME TO Lauderdale-By-The-Sea…inside the seal!…

Leaving a big white base with a seal…only….

Comm.Dodd raised this as one item that was not followed to fruition with the Commission finalizing it…at the Round Table on 2/3/09….

So what did the Town staff do?….They went and made a transcript of the meeting this item appeared in  consent agenda.. 12c…omn 12/16/08….to “show him” his words…

What did Comm. Dodd do…he responded back that he clearly said “added” to the bases…

BC…This is so wrong on so many levels…For the Town Manager…to act in such a manner to a Commissioner who is really her boss…she has not found the answers of when and who on the pavilion…( yeah…we know…move on…)…but she spent the time to try to play “gotcha” on this one ?…WOW!….

And where did it get her?…….Anyone in attendance thought it would have been understood…the flagpole bases would have the Town Sea…with “WELCOME TO” above it …

Is it even legal to change the words within the Town seal?…

The result from the Town interpretation of the directions provided……..Only a slow walking pedestrian would notice the change…$700 down the drain…kind of like the too small flags…the unbecoming streetlight banners….and the stripped down ($70 thousand dollars) Pavilion…OUCH!…

You can bet not one more thing…. will go up …..in the ground…or on anything in Town without 3 Commissioners signing off with no changes allowed in the aftermath! WHEW!….

more to come……..
