A $1,600,000.00 public yacht club for only one yacht: this could happen only in St Marys.

It is the city council that should explain themselves. Why did they spend $1,600,00.00 tax revenue for the Gilman Yacht Club property for the docking of only one private Yacht? This is public property and those were public funds.

Look sport, you sound like a moron with this stupid post. The property was bought so that the city could control what went in there. The intention is to sell it or lease it to an entity of the city's choosing. The right entity has not been found yet.

Have you actually walked the property? I don't see room for a hotel and parking. How tall will a new hotel be? Sawyer could not make it work with the downtown height limitations.

stop spending tax dollars to try to turn the "downtown" into a tourist attraction.

fact you dont think the city has enough power now? They tell landowners if they can put a fence up wants you to go get a permit to change a hotwater heater in you house.

when did the city get the power to buy something just to say what can be put there.
Who in their right mind would pay a million bucks and then have someone tell them what they can and cant do with it.
im going to guess you think calvin lang would of put a non money maker there.If he did that land would still be on taxroll.

The city does have the right to make purchases and decide who to sell or lease the land to. The city has received several proposals for developing the property. So far, none has been acceptable. I am sorry you don't share the vision of improving St. Marys or understand the Government.

You would have to be an idiot to share the City Councils vision of improving St. Mary. For thirty years this vision has been in the works with zero results. Cumberland Island is the sole provider for downtown tourism. The three tourists that had no plans to travel to the Island were pissed and lost ending up on our dead end street.

We want to be like Carmel California and Cape Cod. The finincial well being of my tourist business depends on it.

You property tax payers can afford it. Keep paying and shut up. The Council knows what they are doing.

Most of us are old and transplants to this community. We are financially secure and our children are long gone. That is one reason we don't give a crap about local jobs. All the business's that have shut their doors doesn't effect us, it's not like an up scale boutique closing.
So at the club we discuss pretty things over drinks. Tourists like pretty things especially in the golden years. Pretty things cost money. That's where you people come in. We really have a simple vision so get onboard.

Please tell me where I said it was not their right. But let me say this 1st. If any council has to do the voting behind closed doors knows for a fact its not what the people wants.
the only 3 that did not vote for it was Bird,Gant,and Nancy all 4 of the others should get voted out.

On the last 4 meetings I have gone to Bird, Gant and Howell are the only ones thinking the city should get a return on all their invesments. Post last week acts like he wants to putmore goverment or commitees together and I agree with bird and gant we need less.

There you have it, chap. Right sporting of you to let the serfs and laborers in on our little secret. Good show.

Sadly, it's unavoidable that a nose or two may get bent out of shape over things being as they are, but in the end, we shall have St.Marys precisely where we want it: head down, butt up, and ripe for the buggering.

Take that, you ungrateful colonists!

As long as the five in the middle have voting power this insane tourist policy will continue for another thirty years. We want a strong healthy community based on citizen growth and prosperity.

I agree to a point but I think Gant is the most reasonable of the 5. The only comment Ive heard him say was that he wants the city to put more stuff to attract retired people. Thats okay but if we dont get jobs we will lose both young and old.
I know several people that got their parents to sell here and buy homes closer to them because they could not find a job here and did not want to drive to bwk or jax.
I dont have a problem with retired people moving here but when you are running them off because their kids that want to take care of them cant find work.
If mayor would ask or tell Roger Weaver to spend his time on helping get jobs here instead of wasting tax payers time and money on this MHD bull passed.
Last meeting a person from mill site was asking questions about a company having intrest in mill site but needed to know about the barge traffic.To just get the answer RW would have to check
