Thursday's special meeting to discuss code enforcement, election qualifications
By CHER PHILLIPS
The McIntosh Town Council has called a special meeting for Thursday, Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center in Van Ness Park. One agenda item concerns a qualifying period in October for residents to apply to run for town council. The second involves Marion County Code enforcement.
The council held another special meeting last week to discuss the matter of code enforcement, as well as clarify former code enforcement officer Art Davis' removal from office. After last week's meeting, the council sent an interlocal agreement to Marion County asking the county to take over local code enforcement because the town has not been able to manage this at the local level.
Discussions at last week's meeting between the former Council President Joe Phillips and residents became heated. Phillips turned in his resignation to the town office the following morning stating no reason.
Per the town charter, Phillips' seat will have to be filled on an interim basis and then an election held within 60 -90 days to replace him. When the previous former Council President Danaya Wright resigned in July, Lee Deaderick was appointed as interim council member. Deaderick has since applied for Wright's seat during last week qualifying period. He was the only resident to step forward running unopposed.

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
