IKR? Who needs a bunch of retirees moving in - picking up trash, mowing their yards, painting and repairing their houses...

WOW! 1. That someone actually sent said letter. 2. That no one can acknowledge the letter. 3. That no one will address the letter at an open meeting at a citizen's request. If the letter was unauthorized and this is a scam I would hope that prosecutors track down the originator and charge them for the appropriate crimes, mail fraud being the first.

Mr. Harris.....you've been scammed! You probably should refrain from attending council meetings unless you plan to run for office again.

I'm sorry.....I meant Mr. Woods.

Mr Woods if anyone is preying on the community it is YOU!!

Mr Woods does have a point. It would be good to know who is behind the letter and what the motivations are.

City Manager

The city sent him a letter. It was sent to his family home in Colony Park which is in District 5, not District 1. The pool at his family home had deteriorated to the point that it was green and swamp like. The city put he (and his neighbors' pool by the way) on notice that they had 10 days to remedy and report. The letter he received is the standard follow up letter asking to inspect the premises to make sure the subject matter issue was resolved. City management has responded and met with Mr. Woods many many times on this matter (and several other of his code violations) and explained this several times. Last we met, Mr. Woods showed photos that he had taken corrective action at his family home in District 5, Colony Park and no inspection was necessary as he responded as requested in the first notice, that he fails to mention in his guest column. I hope this clears up any confusion.
