The Weekend That Wasn’t

This can certainly go down as the weekend that wasn’t in LBTS…Ft. Lauderdale…

Best laid plans…go POOF…….

No Friday night Jazz on the Square…

followed by Fleet Week without the Air and Sea Show…

in what would have probably been the best weather for this event on a weekend ever!

More missing in action…this weekend…

No Sandra Booth on the Bev Kennedy AM radio yesterday at the scheduled 5:45 pm time….

UPDATE: guess the designated BCbythesea “listener” missed it…as they reported back no S. Booth..Ms Booth emailed to say…it was on…at 5:45 pm exactly…and was a hit!…

No article in BTSTimes by their #1 investigative reporter John Thompson…

What we missed…dear readers…a challenge of sorts to the Town Manager’s choice of methodology used to get to the bottom of the north side annexation excess revenue…

It is said to have been a preliminary…eye-raising increase from the one presented by the Manager a few weeks back…and may be why the former Mayor Pro-Tem is so quick to write in the last Futures…in so many words…in a letter to the Editor…..”Let’s move on….”…

Note: BCbythesea…was told…hearsay of course…. of a previous incident that transpired after the loss suffered by the previous majority….

a former commissioner went into Town Hall to “look” at some papers inbetween his loss and the installation of his opponent…and was denied access…again…hearsay…

Add to that……

the new Mayor had an agenda item…with the same message …the annexation is finished…move on…which raised many questions…it was abruptly pulled by her on the dais rather than adrdessed…causing even more questions to arise from her actions….

BCbythesea opinion……. this missing article…would have screamed back…”Not so fast!”….

pity we were not to see this important piece…. in this issue…

Heard there’s an ongoing problem with some residents in town…and the development office…involving …perhaps staff that over-reacts and staff that is said to over-step their roles by advising just who will and will not receive a variance….as they walk in the door… to apply…(sounds like employees of the DMV…)

It is possible that some are getting the heads up and mistakes have been made…and some feel slighted..and feel an injustice has occurred…

In a previous post…BCbythesea was told a development employee called in the police…have heard that police presence was required by this office once more…

BC opinion…it appears like intimidation…to a resident…..most unfortunate…. in this little town…

Will variances will be forthcoming…. to remedy these situations?……..

BC opinion….they should be granted and the cost covered by the town…for the town’s mistake…as has been the case in the past….

the criteria for “hardship” for variance…is a crap shoot to say the least…sometimes …it depends on which way the wind is blowing…in LBTS…just look into past reasons…

BC opinion…get rid of the “hardship” rule and put in being reasonable…is the subject of the variance going to impact anyone involved negatively?…if not…grant it…

Papers are piled up…and will hopefully be addressed tomorrow…along with the Local papers…

BCbythesea Hubby was caught with a flat bicycle tire over the Hillsboro bridge this am…so everything planned is now rushed and moved around….

Marlins again tonight…

Catch up on the categories…

Enjoy the weather…even though the skies are clear…. with no planes in sight!
