The site is being phished. Cheong, Schmidt, Tate, and Lyng all link to a site selling "papers", such as term papers. Nothing to do with the city. No one has commented on this site in over a year. I keep getting notices by email that there are comments, but they are only phishes. I received 21 successive emails of noreply@... Please confirm and advise.
Funding provided via local, state and federal dollars similar to the current beach renourishment projects being completed on privately owned residential and commercial properties.
- Publicize it. The last entry was a year ago. Right now the neighborhood site does more business. Maybe link it to the main page. 2. Provide substantive feedback to each suggestion or comment as quickly as possible. Right now, no one knows if anyone in the city even reads this stuff. 3. Make it the major site for HOAs and other organizations to present suggestions to the city. Again, provide feedback, and link to the main page. 4. Promote it as a crowdsourcing site to solve well-defined, specific city problems. The smartest person is always employed somewhere else. Sarasota crowdsourced a water-use ordinance. Even DARPA crowdsources. 5. Encourage employees to provide suggestions on city operations. 6. Offer a reward for the best suggestion of the year. 7. Offer a substantive monetary reward for any suggestion that is implemented and saves the city money. Particularly if it comes from an employee. 8. So, Lee, what do you think?
I propose you kill this proposed ordinance.
By the way. I hate this forum. Find something more user friendly.
I have emailed elected officials regarding vehicles permanently housed in FTL, but registered in other states. I asked how report these infractions. I got replies from staffers that pointed fingers in every direction but the correct one. Our communities are deprived of the income associated with these vehicles as well as the fraudulent insurance policies. All I ask is everyone follow the law which provides our community more resources to grow.
Perhaps better instructions on cans. We have many visitors who do not recycle at home apparantly. Public Service Announcements in form of a quiz show. Perhaps with bright eyed children competing on where to put some more unusual items. Wire, Xmas lights, styrofoam, bug spray containers, etc. There are items which I look at and wonder where it should go. I see such atrocities going into recycle bins sometimes I cringe.
This is a great project but I feel that only a handful of residents really know about it and how to get engaged. I'd like for the city to create a marketing/advertising campaign by using banners at popular areas/intersections, electronic traffic signs, ads in the newspaper/popular downtown magazines, buses ads, street light banners, etc... We need to get residents on board/buy-in to this process so that it can really succeed.
