I guess the city does not own enough or the correct equipment to stabilize the city's land. It probably is lacking the fill to replace what had washed away? It probably does not have enough workers on their payroll to have this task done or an engineering department to do the necessary preliminary work to get a job like this going.

The $13.8 million dollars spent on various pieces of land around the city now actually is costing its taxpayers even more. How much more of this land is going to be given away as opposed to sold? How much more of are dollars will be squandered? I am sure the people involved like most others are good people but that is farthest from the point.

To listen to a puffed up politician like McGrail sit on the dais and say "From listening to you folks I can tell your honest people" just drips with the sappiest and plain stupid remarks. Makes himself sound like he just fell off the turnip truck. He did not fall oof the truck and I worry about his trustw

The other stupid comment, "Oh we'll have to use the city's dredges to correct the unstable land." His statements when you first hear them and re watch and hear are so telling. The dredges were purchased to be used for clearing the canals. They were not used to be tied up for months and months as they were under your former buddy Chuck Pavlos former Public do no Works Director! Someone needs to keep track of the nearly $14 million and piece by piece keep track of how much gets given away and to who. Another thing I am interested in in your district is the roads. In 2011 $6.5 million was put together and it was stated then that was the figure that was needed to keep an on going program going. Now it is $8.5 that is almost a 31% increase. Also before Pavlos (decided?) left he entered the city into a piggy back contract with Punta Gorda to buy a hardening compound for road surfacing it was to control the cost. So where is the increased cost labor? I doubt that. Short supply from

Past history shows nothing was being done when Pavlos was here and nothing is being done now. City should go out buy more equipment it does not need because it does not use a lot of it past and present. Contractors in the county know Cape Coral has better equipment then they have and it was not used much when Pavlos was PW director. That is no secret but may be to just you Lolita.
