Still only 2.3 points of hitting the ceiling on the millage rate. We will get to see the city burn through their new tax revenue and have the state of Florida knocking at the door. More eyes on this area now than you could ever imagine. So we will wait and watch for the moment,

@lightswitch: Charlie's pictures didn't show that Code is not doing their job, what it showed is how depleted the Code Department is. They need more officers to cover a City in growth. You see this is a prime example of smaller Government. Doing less with less. It is people like you that demand less Government but more or at least the same services. Truly a form of govern-mental illness. We get the services we pay for.

Flash....Sully is contemplating challenging the vote. So surprised. His folks are begging him to do it. Surprise, surprise. Anything to stay in the limelight or lemonlight this time. Can't stand that a woman beat him, neither can Deile etc. Oh well, we have to wait for the certification and then his decision. That"s what the Cape is all about. Turmoil, the magic of mud pies.

Hey Ray thanks for commenting! I always know I can count on you to say one thing and do something else. To not have you comment I would miss the the merriment you certainly bring to this site. If you made your best try to refrain you are just too weak to do that. I'll miss you Ray. HaHAHA.

"Light switch..if you are so unhappy with Cape Coral, why don't you move away?"

Chief, I echo your question to Dimwit. I have asked the same question myself, many times. We certainly can't blame the market any longer.

@Dimwit... I saw Charlie's performance as well. I actually agree with him about the food trucks. I have a couple I frequent. However, you post is ridiculous. Those photos were of an industrial park, Holding an industrial area to residential rules is like saying Leetz was a shoe in to win the election.

I understand why Charlie made his point, you clearly as always missed the boat. Just your typical desperation of grasping anything to whine about. I agree the Chief, why not hit the bricks if it is that bad?

linda53: You most likely are too young to remember horse drawn carts selling their wares to everyone in the neighborhood. I remember them with fondness. What Charlie was pointing out with his pictures, was entrepreneurship at it's best. Nobody really knows what the future will bring to Cape Coral. I am just hopeful it isn't loaded down with more and higher taxes for my neighbors. The thing concerning code enforcement, he was correct. The property that the kayak club is renting has violatiopns that are plain to see. 2 boat trailers, without a boat on them and a storage container that is illegal. Besides that. We have on the street I live on. A house that has been abandoned for 4 years, give or take a few months. It is overgrown, fence has fallen in, it has been declared a nuisance and hazard property. If I question what is being done. I get the song and dance about it has to go to court. It has gone to court and still nothing is done. That's our code enforcement doing such a good job.

Oh Lightbulb.. you amuse me..even if you are such a Drama Queen.. good ole boy Charlie was playing his part of Phil-A-Buster for his Chief Lemming. Those pics of the horse drawn vendor wagon was a HOOT.. Who wants to eat a hot dog/sandwich next to a pile of horse poo? the Rags might since they thrive on Free meals. Its nice to know that the Positive Move FORWARD is going to happen, so if you hurry, you can catch the next flight out of here. We know how much you hate anything Good happening in the Cape. oh btw, how's that Sullivan thingy working out for you? All the hand holding that was done, didn't work because none of you could shut his pie hole from misspeaking(lying) about the forged document that he had trouble remembering. As for the Code..they do an excellent job ,only the Code VIOLATORS have anything to worry about.. have a nice day

Chiefwalt,

My sentiments exactly. Thanks for commenting to Dimbulb. I do not, as I have him on my "too stupid to comment upon" list, also known as my "fecal roster".

All of the new members need to arrive with an open mind, and a healthy dose of humility.

That was precisely the problem the RAGS had...they arrived with a sense of entitlement and arrogance that was their downfall.

Good riddance to Sullivan and Leetz!

Hey Linda did you enjoy Charlie Myers pictures at the council meeting?

He more than showed how City Code Dept. is not doing it's job. Best part is they are another revenue stream but the stream seems to be clogged! Mr. Cassidy your code enforcers need to help pay their freight!

How's that Linda53 I know your Loving it!

McGrail is all done in politics in Cape Coral and Lee County. However there is always Collier County! Go swim with the big fish Kev!

Kevin did not pull his own district!

Retired fireman now tells how their is a question on how the city manager goes about his business.

Many of us knew this long ago.

Let see how Linda 53 and her chums field this next ground ball!

Linda I am Loving it and can't wait for the implosion.

I don't take instruction from the likes of you lady (I am being kind using that term.

Did you know if a vending machine freezes ice it is manufacturing?

A man with a plan to use a resource the city has too much off (water). Has a plan to use it and create a revenue stream in utility fee and tax can not get a meeting with city staff. In fact he has tried for months, and has viable operations around the state. Oh yes I'll put a cork in it when pigs fly Linda53. When pigs fly!!!!

Did you know if a kayak club uses a public waterway it impedes the use of the people who live on that PUBLIC waterway?

Only in Cape Coral, Florida just an orifice within the state of Florida. Put it
