- It was surprising to me that the commissioners would make up their minds before the workshop discussion. As elected representatives it is incumbent on them to at least hear both sides of the argument. Almost all indicated that it was too controversial a subject and therefore they were not prepared to do anything other than stay with the status quo. I am sure there are other decisions that they must address that are equally controversial.
What does condo rules have to do with this.
There are us dog owners who believe we do need this now.
We also believe that it can be controlled and enforced.
If it were put to a vote it should be to all property owners not just residents, there must be at least the same number of non resident tax payers as resident tax payers. Taxation without representation.
How can it be said that the overwhelming sentiment is not to have dogs, without some sort of vote or pole. Where are these statistics coming from?
And finally the community is already divided on this issue and effectively ignoring it is not the way it should be dealt with.
Frankly I am really disappointed at such a spineless display.......
