  1. Same questions as previous article: We understand how anxious non-FMB residents are to get our island, including the beaches, back to normal, we all are. Unfortunately, FMB residents don’t have time to spend at the beach, we’re still cleaning debris on our properties or trying to rebuild our homes. With that said, I’m wondering the following: First, Why isn’t more being done to hold property owners accountable for their clean-up? There are several properties with rotting food outside, attracting rodents, that have not been touched yet (7-Eleven at Driftwood and the yellow condo across the street from 7-11at the end of the canal are examples). Next, Why aren’t the canals getting more attention than the beach? These are also filled with rotting debris that will eventually make its way to the beaches. The canals are so smelly and the weather isn’t even hot yet. Clean beaches aren’t going to matter if the stench from the rotting canals help create red-tide that makes its way to the gulf. What about bike lanes and sidewalks? If we do happen to have time to take a walk to the beach, we can’t take our dog because the sides of the road and sidewalks are still too filled with debris to walk him that far. Finally, why so much time spent on the beaches with all of the above still needing to be addressed? We understand, from a non-resident’s view, that the beaches are a priority. But, from a resident’s point of view, there are many other priorities as well….not just the beach.

  2. Please have detailed explanation of the Repair/Imporvemnt Cost Form that the town requries from every homeowner who is trying to put their life back together. This form has to be submitted with each permit and also has to include all the NON permitted repairs the material cost and labor costs! (you have to price yourself out as a day laborer if you can do some of the repairs yourself). Also the form has to be notarized.
    So far it has taken over a week to even figure out how to complete this form to the satifaction of the permitting office. Examples: how to justitfy matierial and labor costs breakdowns would be benifical. How a homeowner is supposed to estimate overhead and profit costs is still a mystery. Also, there is A.B.C and D requirments that a homeowner must provide. This has cost us weeks of delays to even get permits submitted.

  3. Is boil water still in effect?
    We have had running water for over a month & I would hope it would be clean to drink by now?
    Please advise
