With all of the issues facing this city this is what steams your corn? I for one am happy to see every one of those signs, because it means a business is operating in our city, paying taxes, and providing jobs.

Then let's change the signage ordinance to create what McGrail speaks about BLIGHT!

Lets SHUTTER the Code Enforcement Dept. Balancing the budget. (I am not for this>)

But I do see a lack of revenue. You know that elusive stream I keep hearing about.

We have ordinance against leaving trailers boat, construction, RV in the driveway or the front of the home. As it reads 1st a warning then daily fines. I have 2 homes that are now rentals one home has a boat in the drive way for at least 4 days. (lost revenue $100). I have another rental with 2 work trailers, one with billboard signage on it the other rail enclosed for debris. e vehicles with signage on the doors. This house has been occupied now over a month how much money could have been generated by code enforcement? The landlord should be responsible to instruct his renter about code. However who knows if he is renting or the place is homesteaded? Another possible revenue stream missed. Here is your blight Mr. McGrail.

You are so right at list about the number of issues facing the city of Cape Coral, Florida.

In this morning News-Press I see a law was passed in the state of Florida.

The state will not be responsible for pension shortfalls incurred by local government agencies.

I take that to mean county and city. So we have another issue more than just on the horizon.

It could be a blessing though and the end of guaranteed cost increases on a yearly basis no matter what inflation or the cost of living really is. There goes the 80% plus base pay retirement packages.

Seems like somebody shot themselves in the foot so to speak!
