this just in, remember when the past & present administration though that the Neptune water meter was a fantastic idea, well as of the last report we have received, at least 600 meters have had to be repaired, what we don't know is how many meters were installed to determine the percentage of defected meters, oh well throw another 1.5 million at the problem and we are sure that the former mayor's neighbor is willing to spend it........

Hadenough: Yes there was a study done back in 2008 or 2009 by Hill Engineering. It covered the project from Wright Park all the way to Main Street. When the federal Government was passing out money for shovel ready projects the City sumitted a request for such funding for the wall project as well as the Water Plant upgrade, No response or money came our way. The question I would ask, if I could, would be why are we paying up to $200,000 for a study when we already have one and paid for?

the council-person at large was never told about the city's magic money tree, the mayor goes out and picks all they need to fund all these pipe dreams, when in actually there is only one place the money will come from and every taxpayer knows that answer

Absolutely unbelievable. Spending $200,000 that was not budgeted to hire an engineering firm to do work on the sea wall that does not present a clear and present danger. As for Gugino is he still meeting with his former boss to spend the taxpayers money on projects that should have been addressed during the Fry administration. Was a study done during the past administrations to address the seawall? The city is in a state of decay. Taxes are up property values down but the seawall must be addressed. Insanity at the highest level.
