Kudos to the City of Holly Hill for standing up to these bloated bastards and refusing to be extorted for $25,000 by Volusia County.
Now, they plan to punish us by shutting down Calle Grande for two months while they make $118K in repairs to the arches – which they will ultimately tear down, rather than recast (mark my words) because you don’t need historical features and community amenities as much as Jim Dinneen needs a pay raise – or more money for their cronies, tax breaks and giveaways. . .
The repair could have been made and the roadway kept open for a fraction of what you and I are paying to “renovate” the Commission Chambers ($545,000 with the work being awarded to Councilman Josh Wagner’s brother-in-law – I don’t make this shit up folks).
Just one more shining example of how petty these common assholes truly are. Make no mistake – Jim Dinneen is scolding the citizens of Holly Hill for not giving in to the County’s demand that they provide $25,000 for “flagmen” to direct traffic – something that should have been factored into the repair cost.
The County Council are like an unruly group of recalcitrant children – schoolyard bullies who consistently pick on those who cannot defend themselves. Remember this at the ballot box and let these corrupt bastards know there is some shit we won’t eat.
