Pelican

What a can of worms the Vice Mayor opened…when he “ad-libbed” from the dais at the 6/24/08 commission meeting during Commissioner comments….on “his” idea…see previous post under suggestion category…3/5/08…and 6/24/08 scoops…to see where the “idea” first appeared….

This has become a major problem on the dais…throwing out changes that effect the town….without doing the homework first…to see if it is a Ordinance…a Resolution….in the Charter…or if a designation exists …before jumping in…head first!…

Just as the Vice Mayor was wrong on the original intent of using Jarvis Hall…even after it was brought to the commissioner’s attention…before the vote…by honorary LBTS Historian….John Thompson…he (Vice Mayor) may be wrong on the designated use for the Chamber facility….making it appear…. his “idea”….(no matter where he “lifted” it from)…..look like an opportune way for “payback….once again…for inter-mingling between the the Chamber and the Futures…for being “uber” political at the last election….the “HatFUTURES” and the McIntees….

The Pelican reflected what will surely become a ground-swell of opposition from LBTS residents…merchants… hoteliers….and Chamber members…if this is indeed the case…. that the building has a designation for its use…. to be the welcome center for the Town…

Paul Novak…Chamber President….gives some salient points…that need to be addressed as well….parking problems….at the top of the list….

BCbythesea….in previous post…put forth the idea of a “satellite” Chamber storefront…to see the impact…pro or con….on a trial basis….

Whatever happens….next time out of the box……any idea…original or not from the dais……..get staff to do the research ….. this would be the “appropriate” use of their services….and have a plan to present…from the inception… to the fruition……including every step in between….

It would go a long way in showing that our elected officials are doing their due diligence….

BCbythesea….maybe that “truce” with the Pelican….will be short lived once again….leaving a certain local Editor and his wife….. the predictable recipients of the 1st CIC… “Citizen of the Year” ……previous post….opportunity to toss out the old…. “told ya so”…to the their co-horts…after the Pelican Editor…..called the new majority a “train out of control”….and the “gang of four…..

The HatPELICANs and the M & McIntees…….. HMMMMM…….
