The rule is that items will be posted in a timely manner. In the past the agenda for meetings were always posted on the Thursday before a meeting. Now it's not being done. They might post on Friday if it is convenient and an agenda item is one that they want to sneak through. This happened with this item last week. Staff had the info on Friday, but it was not posted until a couple of hours before the Monday meeting. I call this a sneaky move by council to get what they want without public comment. They broke their own rules and the vote taken should be null and void.

Nancy Pelosi would be proud to know that Cape Coral has to pass the bond before we know what's in it.

Quote "With the General Election little more than two months away, now is NOT the time to break the trust with the public by appearing to eschew its input NOR is it the time to spend money - ANY MONEY - on expenditures that CAN'T even be sold as prudent to the entire Council." -- Promised TRANSPARANCY, yet this sneaky group has shown their true colors. This is NO WAY to build public trust. Vote NO in November!!!

Let's NOT forget, this additional $26,744 is only the beginning. How are they planning of paying for the purchase of the Old Golf Course, the Sports Complex at Oasis School, the Bimini Basin Project, the Seven Island Project as well as a proposed restaurant partnership at the foot of Matlacha. This crew thinks they have a "open check book". TAX & SPEND COUNCIL. Does this council even care about our residents who are employee in the hospitality sector have seen their hours cut in half, due to the water crisis as well as the downtown construction. YES, its a reality & they are all feeling the pinch. STOP with the TAX & SPEND mentality.

Doesn't this council realize just how many residents are living paycheck to paycheck. Many residents racked up thousands of dollars in expenses during the mandatory evacuation from IRMA, as well as the damages to their properties. Many are still trying to catchup & yet this city government is looking to tax them everywhere they can. Currently, a lot of them in the hospitality businesses have seen their wages drop drastically, many having their shifts reduced to half of what they were used to, with NO-END in sight. Our council members & CM doesn't seen to care. Their incomes are guaranteed by us, the taxpayers. They will still be receiving their regular pay checks as well as their scheduled raises. KARMA!
