Is Pelican Bay shorting county?

Full story: Star-Telegram.com

Pelican Bay police sure are writing a lot of tickets. The tiny city is also robbing Tarrant County taxpayers of money.

The mayor MUST have approval by council BEFORE he can do ANYthing! Type A general law city,,check it out then youll know. And they MUST work together to make it work. Tynes has his job cut out for him and IF he is making illegal moves then he needs to be stopped before the DA's offices get involved again! If they are NOT already? I'm sure they keep close tabs on what happens here, just waiting for the formal complaint to arrive to JUMP in!

When people work together good things can and do happen. The problem you people seem to have is that you are so eager to catch some one doing wrong that you haven't got time for anything else. Untill you start looking for the good in people you are just going to end up with the same old going no where crap that you've been dealing with for years. Aren't you just a little bit tired of it? And the DAs office doesn't concerne them selves with what might happen, as they are already covered up with what has already happened in the entire county. Grow up people or things will never get better.

texan, once a city has had prior problems brought to the DA's attention they do keep tabs on whats happening, but they cant really do anything until a formal compliant has been served & then a formal investigation is started. I have talked w/certain agents in those offices & they really do watch the Bay. And have for years! Believe it or not?
I do wish the city would stop all the name calling, bringing in family members into the mix & work to fix things. and when those who claim to have proof of anything illegal BUT do nothing, seems to me to all be Hot air! and not believable.

An orgnized group of citizens can do more to correct government misconduct than the biggest group of lawyers. Just don't fail to recognize it will take a while-maybe several city council elections even.

I would to know just how far out of Pelican Bay the police can go and issues tickets. Why should they be able to issue tickets in Azle city limits and be able to recieve the fines. Shouldn't the money go to Azle?
Sonya, I am dealing with this dept now on a ticket where they said I ran a stop sign at Liberty / Sandy beach, He followed he was parked at Lucky Lady and followed me to 730 before stopping me. His excuse was the hills on sandy beach were too dangeruos to stop on. This so called OFFICER just went looking for me with a warrant, and I know where the PB jurisdiction stops. They are poaching Tarrant Co. Sheriffs area. I have the officer recorded telling me he can run traffic anywhere in Texas and City of PB would get the money. He knows the laws because he worked at Fort Worth PD 12yrs before they fired him. We all need to get together and hire an attorney and deal with these issues.
Anyone interested is grouping together email me at tcso108@aol.com

I've been followed,for a long time in some cases. I've asked, and found out that the officer is running my plate # to see who I am and if I have any warrants. He would do this after some small infraction he witnessed me doing. Then all of a sudden he gets off my tail and leaves. No warrants come back and he chooses to forget about what small thing I did wrong. I've also been told that they sometimes are told on the radio that there is a warrant but when it is asked to be confimed, the final word doesn't come through from the original town. Tx police officers can serve warrants anywhere in the state. They can drive a couple hundred miles to serve a warrant if they have info of where you are. A couple of buds have been served and arrested when they thought they couldn't come after them.
Sounds like the radio told them you had a warrant but it couldn't be confirmed.Before you spend money with an attorney why don't you ask the local chief---azle or PelicanBay? I wouldn't ask R.Finstad because she isn't legal to drive but did anyhow. She sounds like a REAL DUMB A^^. She doesn't know s**t.

News Flash! They can ticket you anywhere in a nearby jurisdiction, and Azle can even ticket you in PB! They do not have to see the violation in PB, either. Traffic laws are traffic laws, you know. The officer is right, you are wrong. Plus, we have mutual aid agreements with Azle anyhow, so there you go.

Most of the stoners and drunks out here run those same stop signs on both sides of Sandy Beach, and usually don't even signal for a turn, so I don't really have any sympathy for you at all.

YOU ARE BLIND, RIGHT???? Finstad is leading you and your whitetiped cane around because you are BLIND. Go back and read the newspaper article. SHE was driving with a SUSPENDED DRIVERS LICENSE. That means a JUDGE TOOK her drivers l. away from her stupid a**. Probably for a DUI or never having insurance. If she didn't have insurance, and ran into you, caused you physical damages, you would get no money from her. She supposedly doesn't have a job either. If you let her borrow your car, and she wrecked it, your insurance company would cancel you and you would have a hard time getting decent insurance again yourself. You call that ridiculous CRAP. Like I said your blind. SHE is dangerous. Her drivers license was taken FROM HER. SHE was still driving. You need to learn some driving terms. AND GET BETTER FRIENDS>
You were the one talking SMACK
Get a dictionary before you come back on here - FOOL
"Bitter" - look up the definition. WHY WOULD I BE BITTER AT HER DUMB A**????????

Hey now, no one is forced to live anywhere unless a court of law sends you to prison. If you are not part of the solution, you must be the problem. Get up, clean off your windows, clean up your yard, take a shower, stop blaming others/a whole town, and maybe your own personal life will look brighter. What's your address? Maybe you would like to go to church with me and my wife? Huh?

I live off of Florence in Azle. I threw papers in Pelican Bay. What the hell does church have to do with it? Maybe you would like to go fishing and drink beer with my dog and I? Huh?

So happy to hear back from you, Shamus.
Church and GOD could give you a new outlook about life. Right now you don't like yourself. You are making your own problems someone else's fault. That way you don't have to deal with your real issues. Like I said, No one forces anyone to live in a certain place. You can move if you want. Don't think that will make you like yourself any more though. What's your exact address? I'll get some people from church to come by and help you clean up your yard. Maybe all those extra news papers need to be trashed. We would love to help! Clean windows can make the world look different!

Rock, what's this obsession you have with clean windows? AND if you do not know where shamus or I live, how could you know whether our windows are clean or not, do you think you are God? You probably should seek professional help, because your pastor just isn't getting the job done.

You are a strange one my friend! I am quite happy with the view my windows have to offer and be assured, nobody loves me more than me! Do feel free to send your wife over here. She can play some hymns on my skin flute!

Be nice shamus, if you do maybe Rock will take REALLY, RatFink, and their buddies to Church, and leave us alone, or not. Right now I think he's having a God complex. Better idea! We shouild each say a prayer for him.
