1sandy... it is the ratepayer that will vote the remaining two RAGS gone. FYI, the ratepayers has paid for the North R/O plant because the slackers would not stand up and be responsible for themselves. They allowed the mayor incumbent to lead them astray ,when he stopped the infrastructure of this city.Watching him trying to use the same strategy is sickening. why, if we had installed All of the UEP in this town,back in 2008,we may have had a shot at the HERTZ Plant going in Across the bridge.Instead, we get to watch Ft Myers leave us in their past! Vote wisely in September and bring the Cape forward.She deserves the best leaders possible.

Would it be fair to say that when the city of Cape Coral, Fl. having a future deficit of $20 million. Made a $13.1 million purchase of worthless land pulling it off the current tax rolls and used the money from the water/sewer/storm water funds that the current rate payers made possible. When do we catch a break from this wasteful city in Cape Coral, Florida?

I do not understand the logic behind the statement that square foot is easier and more verifiable.Every property in the Cape was pre-platted, so the front foot measurement is known just as accurately as the square footage. Depth of the property is meaningless when evaluating the cost to install utilities. Front foot is a near perfect analog for the cost. Several years ago, the Council appointed UEP committee recommended 7-1 to change to the front foot method, with consideration given to pie and wedge lots, as well as charging corner lots for their address side only. Sullivan was the dissenter, as he was a nay-sayer on all issues...just like today.

Just think if the RAGs were still in control the rate payers would be paying for the North RO plant all by themselves. If it were up to Leetz & Mayor Sullivan the rate payers would be screwed. RATE PAYERS, remember them at the polls this election.
