Dave Kiffer brought up a good question or two!
Since the State no longer owns the Ports & Harbors, how much money does the port make on moorage?
What is this money being used for if not Port & Harbor Upkeep?
And why shouldn't any upkeep be paid for by using the moorage fees that are collected?
Why would anyone think that the public as a whole should pay to renovate & upkeep the Ports & Harbors?
I 'spose that soon another try at a sales tax increase is in store to benefit a few paid for by us, the taxed-out taxpayers.
Perhaps Private Ownership would better manage our Ports & Harbors.
At least do it with out a tax! Just raise moorage fees.Make ends meet or put it into private ownership!
Fact 2: And as far as Whitecliff goes, I'm all for tearing it down. But I never envisioned a parking lot. No what I see is a building for just the Seniors and the rest of the lot turned into a handicap accessable park so the Seniors have their own building and mini-park. They deserve it!
Take Care & Good Fishin' To Ya!
