McIntosh Mirror: Reflecting news in the Tosh

Want to impact your community? Many of McIntosh's citizen boards have open seats and a council at a loss as to how to fill them.

Light-up McIntosh December 15

Light-up McIntosh will begin at the Civic Center at 6:30 p.m. The event will host Santa Clause and an area choir from six local churches will sing.

07.12.06 -- MEETINGS: More meeting dates this week: July 11-14; upcoming agenda


Tree Committee meets tonight 7 p.m.
Civic Center

Previously, I posted July 11 since that is what I have in my notes. Either this changed or I made a mistake. If it was the latter, I'm sorry for an inconvenience that may have caused. When I went to pick up the vote totals, I wondered where the Tree Comittee was ... maybe there was a conflict with the center.


Town Council Meeting
Thursday, July 13
NOTICE ------> 7 p.m. (I posted 6 p.m. last night. 7 p.m. is the correct time per the posted agenda today.)
Civic Center

Agenda items:

The highlight of this meeting will be under the messages from the council members.

Posted to date are three items. The first deals with removal of members of the citizen boards, the second concerns the petition amendment to the McIntosh charter. The third was added by Joe Phillips about this blog site, to my understanding. Unless maybe someone else in the council started his or her own blog ... if so, send me the link and I'll post it under links. I'm equal opportunity. Realistically, the editorial board (me) is thinking maybe Joe isn't a fan of the blog. Though, I have to tell you, listing the blog as an agenda item is racking up the hits.
Thanks Joe!

Other items deal with a message from Scott Walker on legal representation and a letter from Mr. Holloway. A guest speaker will be Barbara Fellman. They'll hit some business with a resolution on Statewide Mutual Aid agreement and the continuation of the June 22 meeting that ended when it became so heated.


REMINDER: The FEMA meeting is still on for Thursday morning and if you live in areas that could be in danger of flooding this could be relevant to you. There could be some impact to flood insurance.
Oh -- anyone who does go and feels like writing up a couple grafs on what happened, please feel free to e-mail me and I will post it for others to benefit from.


Code Enforcement Board Meeting

Editor and Publisher:

I'm Cher From McIntosh, FL I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida working on a master's degree in Mass Communication. While I was finishing my undergrad degree in journalism last year, I reported on McIntosh, Fla. for an in-depth reporting class. I figured that the reporting and the public record files should go somewhere people can access them. Reporters don't report to keep the information they find to themselves. Some of that reporting is included here in a forum that allows response. McIntosh suffers because with no news coverage, the local government and the rumor mill have too much potential to run rampant over residents. I moved to McIntosh in the fall of 1999. My profile

About This Blog

The primary purpose of this blog is to accurately reflect what happens in town public meetings and dispel rumors. I record the meetings and make them available for download. One of the goals of this blog is to offer residents a place to voice opinions. The comments, views and opinions expressed there are not necessarily those of the editor.

Web This Blog

"A Popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." - James Madison, 1822

"Personal journalism is also not a new invention. People have been stirring the pot since before the nation’s founding; one of the most prominent in America’s early history was Ben Franklin, whose Pennsylvania Gazette was civic-minded and occasionally controversial." - Dan Gillmor, 2004, We the Media
