BC- Let’s see what is contained this go- round…this has been kicked around quite a few times…In this writer’s opinion it has been done under pressure from a few “chosen CIC members” and pushed through by the Commission CIC members on the dais….to benefit those “chosen few”…at the expense (pun intended) of the rest of the taxpayers in this town…

The rate originally decided on for residential parking annual permit was $50….Once voted on and then pulled to accommodate these CIC members…by Vice Mayor McIntee…Next time it was on to enact but  due to McIntee “being asleep at the wheel” … all residential parking was kept under the same  heading as it has long  been designated by signage and in the ordinance…Realizing he “blew it” after the vote…McIntee tried unsuccessfully to re-vote…and change this vote…neither worked…Next time this was on the agenda…It was brought back…only this time the special “benefit” to the “Chosen CIC members” was also a lower annual rate for beach parking to $20 annually!…It passed!…

Other towns charge upwards of $150 dollars annually for this type of prime parking…and we just gave it away…at a cost to the taxpayers of lower revenues for prime spots…that will be empty for a large part of the time…and now paying for new signage…designating the spaces for beach permits only…

The present residential spaces ….soon to be beach parking spaces  are already underutilized in the El Prado parking lot…with tourists moving their cars to keep from being ticketed on a regular basis……

Nothing like election time….with friends on the dais…

more to come….
