Great letter, its ashame that Sully and Leetz still don't get it. I doubt losing the next election will make them understand either.

I am so over things not being done "RIGHT" in this city. So glad that the majority of Council saw fit to do the right thing and go out to RFP. What also irks me, the fact that the current proprietor doesn't want to even try (apparently) to enter into a FAIR bid practice.

Since KC River Stop has been doing business there for 20 years as stated at the council meeting. It certainly was not Sullivan or Leetz who put them there. Nor did they take their $300,000 to make the improvements to do business there. So the RFP has been inked to proceed so let's see what comes and then let's see if the product is the same, better, or worse.

I am willing to bet most of the posters including myself do not use this facility much if at all anyway. As for Frank Perry please council put the requirement in the RFP that carrots and celery sticks along with mineral water be put on the menu.

Lets hope for a fair competition for this eatery on city property. I think KC's has had years of favoritism shown to them. As I understand it, their contract with the city is so biased for them that the city cannot even put in a vending machine or soda machine in the yacht club for the employees use. I guess they are afraid of any competition. Let the games begin! Step right up and make an offer, someone, please!

In the real world, competition is a fact of life. There are more than one person or group that would love to have the opportunity to place a business on such a prime location. The bottom line is to get the best deal for the City, and it's taxpaying citizens. No Bias, no Bull, no political payback. Good article Frank. If you read the articles in the media, you can make the simple observation that some current council members do not know how to shut up, even when they write.

KC's is more of an eye-sore than an asset. The food is only fair. I would rather see a McDonalds there. The food would be better.
