Tamarac Needs to Prohibit Street Vendors on Major Roadways

Tamarac Needs to Prohibit Street Vendors on Major Roadways

The City of Coral Springs gave tentative approval to an ordinance that regulates street solicitors at certain intersections in the city.
Basically, what it does is it bans vendors at their most busiest intersections in the city.

After Miramar and Pembroke Pines took created this ordinance, I approached the city commission to bring this forward for our city.

Parks Reopening on Mondays Remain in Limbo

Parks Reopening on Mondays Remain in Limbo

Still frustrated after our 2013 budget was adopted and parks in Tamarac were not opening every Monday just as they were prior to 2010, I contacted our city manager to inquire what the costs would be to open them. According to the city manager, he couldn’t give me an amount to operate the parks one additional day and told me the item would be discussed in January at the strategic planning meeting.

Red Light Cameras:  Tamarac’s Terrible Towers

I received my September issue of Money Magazine the other day and on the front cover was “Best Places to Live 2013.” As I was flipping through all the pages of ideal places to live around the country, I was hoping that Tamarac would one day be listed among them. That was before I took a drive down University and saw the red light ticket camera monstrosities being installed in our city today.

Woodmont Land Change Request Invalid with Covenant in Place

A land change? The chutzpah! The unmitigated gall!

There should never have been such a request, not with the covenant that exists.
Vice Mayor Harry Dressler stated that because there is no covenant he’s proposing a new covenant to protect the 27 holes of golf for 99 years. However, with a dismissive wave of his hand, his answer was that the covenant hadn’t been decided yet.

Just who are they siding with?

Tamarac Commission Moves Forward With Woodmont Housing Plan amid Objections

By Dick Brown: Unbelievable. What could they possibly of been thinking? Looked to me like 99 percent of the people spoke against the plan, but yet the commission voted unanimously to go ahead. The homeowners in Tamarac just don’t seem to matter. 90-95 percent of The Pines at Woodmont III are against building. Woodmont Country Club owner Mark Schmidt has failed both in running the golf courses and club.

Democracy at Work in the City of Tamarac

Democracy at Work in the City of Tamarac

Over the past few weeks in District Two of Tamarac, Florida, I have been canvassing for Petition signatures to Recall and Remove a corrupt and now ineffective City Commissioner from her elected position. Spearheaded by both a Republican and Democratic precinct captains, I wanted to make a difference and joined the small force of like-minded citizens. While political recall may have been the presenting issue, the greater principle emerged very quickly. That is what it is to be a free and proactive American.
