WE MADE THE PAPERS…OOPS!…

Not so fast…No Pot Luck…it’s the LBTS Garden Club Annual Christmas Luncheon…starts at 10am…luncheon…to follow…

Who got this one soooo wrong?…

SEA RANCH CENTER IS DOWN 1 TENANT…

Jay’s Body Works has left the area…due to a raise in rents…Jay relocated down the road in the Galt…34th street by the post office off A1A…he should be up and running by in the next few days…need to contact him…Jay Holstad…954-784-4877…Big Loss…for those who of us who loved to just stroll over for a workout…

NICE JOB!…

Really like the red and white holiday tree wrapping on the palms on either side of Poinciana and Commercial Blvd…along with Town Hall!…

MUTUAL RESPECT….

I often hear that the 2 new Commissioners are at odds or through with this writer…depending on the day…and the post….BUT…as written in the Sausage Series Category…the “problem” the Mc-Gang had with me…continues to this day …nearly a year after Clottey/Dodd won the election …….it was my belief that THEY ( Clottey/Dodd) should have the last word …and decide what THEY( Clottey/Dodd) wanted to do…because THEY (Clottey/Dodd) were the Candidates…and now as the new Commissioners…this writer still feels the same…imagine that!

You see …here in the civilized world of intelligent adults…( no college degree required)…we can agree to disagree about the subject…the position and the vote…and we do at times…….but we still maintain a friendship of mutual respect…sort of the anti-Mc-Gang theory of politics….and friendship…HMMM…..

HAVE YOU RECEIVED AN OLINZOCK OFFICIAL TOWN LETTER?…

I have not seen one up close and personal…at least not one that like those described by the many town residents and businesses…from the Assistant Town Manager…that have a common thread…in the recipients description of being put off and unsettled by the tone and the content…

Maybe a “mentoring” class should be in order for proper administrative behavior…both in person and by mail?….

PARKING PREDICAMENTS…

As we face yet another round of the age old question…free parking…or revenue…a few queries are in order….why do we have paid parking inside the strip shopping areas along Commercial Blvd…while the Commercial Blvd street parking is free?…

Would it not be better to do it the other way around?…First come…first serve…and if you can’t get in the shopping lot…you pay…like many other towns?…

Where are the owners in all of this…the owners of the buildings?…Are they prepared to cover the maintenance of their lots if parking revenue is gone from having no meters?…

One way or another…it does not matter how many times this item is tabled…it’s revenue…for our looming Parking Department….. only option otherwise ….cutting down this piece of the LBTS government pie….

This writer’s opinion…the bags are a waste of time and money…and destroying the meters themselves….forget them..see if it is not against any state laws to charge for parking on Commercial Blvd. If not it seems the number of spaces….would even out the revenue lost for not charging in the shopping area lots…then go back to the chalk…the 2 hours maximum and be diligent with enforcement..charge 24/7 on all street parking including near Poinciana/Bougainvilla…and initiate a mandatory resident parking permit…that offers the residents 2 hours…at meters….as a bonus for living in town…permit stickers can be matched with license plates…similar to Condo parking permits……Make employers responsible for their employees getting town parking permits that makes it easy for parking enforcement to see the employee permit sticker matches with license plate…parked in the proper areas…then forget the entry ways…and update the parking to the new credit card friendly boxes…brought up by the Vice Mayor…as seen in Buffalo …(previous post)…and put this issue to bed…

more to come….
