Here’s The Scoop…Scene Around Town…AFTER THE LETTER GOT OUT….

BUSINESS AS USUAL…in the evening hours of 10/16/08….

The Halloween Committee was busy planning at the Furth’s abode….

The VFD was busy on El Mar Drive……with Drill Night…and 2 AMR trucks included…

LIKE ALL IS WELL IN LBTS?….AFTER THE LETTER GOT OUT!….

So what will tomorrow bring?….

BCbythesea hears the resignation letter has been in the possession of a few newspapers…but for how long?…

Will it appear tomorrow ….with accompanied in-depth investigation in the Futures…the Pelican or the Sentinel?….

This writer has been asked today……where do I stand on this issue…this startling resignation letter…and what it contains?….

I feel the same as I did when the newly elected Commission started out so badly with the Vice Mayor and his ruling of no names allowed when addressing the dais….the change of rules for the use of Jarvis Hall…while ignoring the original intent of the Jarvis family….the perks immediately allocated…the public safety complex….the knee-jerk repeal of the Overlay District…leaving us in limbo with 33 feet…the under-qualified department heads…the Town Manager pushing through items not voted on by the Commission…and so much more….feeling the time I put in for this all to come about amounted to a lot of time being hoodwinked by a small group armed with their own agenda….

Now that group’s agenda includes the VFD….and if the contents of the resignation letter turn out to have validity…. after going through the appropriate process of investigating the matter…. it will be another devastating blow….

Word is that the Town Manager…. if not privy before today of the existence of this letter…. was made fully aware of it today…. the residents of LBTS will have to wait and see what she does with this information…to get to the bottom of it…to restore confidence in both the VFD and herself ….serving as the only oversight for the volunteers….

Who knew what and when?…

Did the Commissioners/ VFD members……wearing two hats….disregard their elected duties by not divulging the knowledge of this letter?

If the facts are true that the contract requirements were not being met…should they have revealed it to the Manager and the town?….

How could they vote in good conscience for the contract…if there was any doubts?….

Transparency is what we all demanded from BSO….

Transparency should continue to be demanded from the VFD….the Town Manager and the Commission….

more to come
