G&B - good point!
I would take the city commissioner's responce at face value. Make sure you still take your army to the meeting to show how serious you are so that they don't sneek it by unnoticed at a meeting were it's not on the agenda, but is brought to the floor by someone in attendance, say a developer seeking permits.
Nice to see this cleared up. Thanks Russ!

Great work, it is nice to see a local government that actually responds to its citizens. Here in Houston? FORGET IT!
I visited Sarasota a while back and loved it. As soon as I get a chance I'm going to visit again for a personal career exploratory week I'm sure Sarasota has enough room for me.
Roby - We ALWAYS have room for a fellow OSO'er. When you plan on coming over, get hold of me.
You can bet I'll be at that meeting.
Having worked with lying currupt politicians personally, I wouldnt believe anything they say even to my face. My best recommendation is to hound them at all the council meetings. But, still have a backup plan ready if they decide to shut it down behind closed doors or during a closed session. My thoughts are to get about a thousand willing people to tow their boats down there and block up the park and surrounding streets with thier vehicles. By the time they get done dealing with the ensuing traffic jamb headache, they will be sorry that they shut the ramp down.
Just a little peacefull civil dissobedience.
RollWithIt, I like your style.............
Its amazing how fast politicians can double talk when confronted by angry "voters". Just think how angry they would be when downtown Sarasota is in gridlock by trucks with boats on trailers.
Some politicians beep like large trucks because they back pedel so often. You do need to stay in their face but just the fact they wrote back to Russ is a surprise to me. In this case I would tend to believe them more than I would a politician here in Houston. You wouldn't believe the gridlock here. Unless you want a new stadium built for your local soccer team, you would never get anything done.
Maybe they hoped that response would circulate and keeo people from attending the meeting.
