Here’s The Scoop….Scene And Heard Around Town…

FRIDAY NIGHT IN TOWN…

Season…is here…as the cool air is wafting in from the north…

Dinner at 101…the place was full…the food was first rate…and the music was going full blast across the way…..benches were full….no open container policing …happy visitors…although….

It is a crying shame that the town decided to scrimp on the holiday tree wrapping lights…it would have gone a long way to continue on the festive atmosphere….by including the median trees up Commercial to A1A……and north on El Mar down to Ham and Eggs…then El Mar south to the parking spaces…sad to see the visitors sitting across from darkness…

Heard about a few fires this week …one an FPL fire by the pier…with a quick response from the VFD…and the other electrical underground in front of Oriana…HMMM…could that one tie in with the horrendous orange lights?…kidding…

Also it seems the agreed upon times discussed at a commission meeting in much detail by the Assistant Town Manager concerning how the pavilion construction site would impact the road and the businesses was a ruse!…. Seems it is ongoing throughout the days…causing great upheaval to the area…with a possible night of darkness for the south side businesses nearest the construction….across from Aruba…

It’s fishing for Pompano time…and we hear there are many frustrated fisherman…unable to get in and out off the parking lot…why?….Will they make a run for the pier in Pompano Beach?

Last 4th of July …in their infinite wisdom…(note the sarcasm)…the Town decided during fireworks negotiations for the use of the pier … for theĀ  former Director of Development to swoop in and give the owners of the pier and the adjoining parking lot a swift kick…by ordering them to close access out of the lot…..leading into the alley…one Commissioner and an event coordinator in charge were livid…with the horrible timing…and were even more miffed when it fell upon the deaf administrative “black and white” ears….in Town Hall…

So why is there a double standard…the alley and access are open for Aruba…but not for the pier?…Looks bad…looks like preferential treatment from the dais…and where is written that a property owner cannot have access into an alley?…It was left for the previous owner to use for many…many years…

BCbythesea…sounds an awful lot like the Walgreens/ laundromat loading debacle….a change of what has been allowed for years….with no problems…. until now…

This writer has also heard …not only would it make sense to have it open during the present pavilion construction…but for continued access for VFD/BSO ATVs and other emergency vehicles…for beach patrols…

Soon there is to be a new restaurant at the pier…why not have another access for that too?…

If we want tourism…If we want business…for this town to really thrive….then it’s time to accommodate our business owners…and their patrons….for the Town to get on board…

A final stop of the evening …before heading home…Abru Caffe’ …a few stores down from Dairy Queen…where the BCbythesea hubby enjoyed the Pear Sorbet…..

more to come….
