07.24.06 -- OPINION POLL: How should McIntosh get out of the red?
Monday, July 24, 2006
Town council members asked the public how the town should raise revenue tonight. Given that the public was me and Howard Walkup on one end of the room and Susan Phillips, Art Davis and another woman on the other, the suggestions weren't terribly overwhelming.
During the meeting, Art said the cops should give more tickets. Susan complained because they only give warnings and later told Frank he should yell at his neighbor. Howard answered some questions about how it used to be. And I took notes. Same ole, same ole.
Sorry I didn't get to the water rate opinion poll before now. I kinda wanted to see what the council's plans were and ask a timely question. Jim Strange asked us how we thought the town should make money. I told him in so many words after the meeting that, really, Howard and I are not much of a sample of the Tosh.
Y'all might be, though.

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
