WHITE SPRINGS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT UNDER THE GANG OF THREE AND TEBO….+ one more addition

What have we gotten for economic development in White Springs under “Gang of 3” and Tebo, let’s look:

1. Poor Boys Power Equipment – gone.
2. Telford – closed.
3. Motel north of Town on 41 – owner told Town won’t provide sewer or water unless owner writes his own grant with the State to fund. Even though this motel is within Town Limits.
4. Back Bay Seafood – gone.
5. Suwannee Hardware Store Monthly Flea Market – gone.
6. Farmers Market that use to set up at Nature Center – gone.
7. Illegal after-hours bottle club “The Spot” – allowed to operate with impunity without a license.
8. Old Suwannee River Motel just deteriorating.
And other bright ideas:
1. Mayor still negotiating for lease on SHE even though Town could not even afford the electric bill at the Nature Center.
2. Carver School (a Historic Site) coming down for a Community Center/playground/park or whatever it will be using a $600,000 grant but can’t fix up the gym at SHE.
3. Mayor (without Council approval) is going to rewrite the fire contract with the County and is negotiating with Board. When did the Mayor graduate law school and who authorized him to rewrite contracts?
4. Hiring another Town employee a Deputy Clerk, why?
5. Hired and uncertified and unqualified Code Enforcement Officer that’s doing exactly what?
6. LOFT funds used for everything with the exception of fixing streets.
7. Degrading water quality and failing sewers allegedly this will be fixed using a grant but when?

Added to the Gang’s Economic Development Plan:

The Adams General Store will close in March, 2019.  Currently all items are being sold.  If the Adams General Store cannot be sold, it will be dismantled for the “Barn Wood”.  The Barn Wood is more valuable than if the Store is sold.
