Subject: Rental Signs
Comments: Why does our island have to be cluttered with rental signs? People who visit think at first glance that the whole island is up for sale until you tell them that they are rental signs. Prospective renters are using the web and can see just what the place looks like inside and out. You have to contact the rental agency anyway, you can't just walk up and knock on the door. Agents give out maps showing all their properties and where they are located so why the need to trash the island with signs. Which by the way become flying missiles during a hurricane. Does anyone agree we should ban these signs? I sure hope so.

Subject: Longboat Key privacy invasion
Comments: I did not know that every time I drive on Longboat key that my car is being photographed without my knowledge or consent, according to your July 23 edition. What are they doing with this information, how long is it held, and when is it deleted? Owners of the vehicles should be informed. The idea that 0,000 of tax payers funds for each community should be spent to fund this invasion of privacy is outrageous.

Subject: Tom O'Brien and the tree house
Comments: It appears that the city of Holmes Beach has known for some time that Tom O'Brien has not been capable of performing his duties at an adequate level. A PIP is for employees that are not meeting their expected levels of service. So the man that got the city involved in the tree house debacle isn't capable in his other job duties either. The city should quit bleeding money and finally decide that it was O'Briens lack of abilities got them into this mess and quietly back away from their needless persecution and prosecution. Their own police already determined that the tree house is on their property. Stop throwing good money after bad.
