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.

10.06.06 -- AGENDA: McIntosh Town Council Meeting Thursday, Nov. 9

The McIntosh Town Council will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. A number of old agenda items will resurface under new business like the CRA resolution, the conservation trust, video cameras in the office and a grant applied for to put sidewalks around Van Ness Park. These are primarily agenda items from the pre-recall council members set in motion that post-recall council members are re-examining.

maybe next time something like the CRA could be presented to the town in a manner that would not cause all the problems that were caused this past time. i do think it would be nice to clean up the 441 corridor and make it look a little better if we were to get a grant for that. but i would want it to be in a manner that would be pleasing to those who own the properties.

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.

"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
