  •  1) Was it your sole decision to go with Glencoe?
  • 2) If not, who made the recommendation to you to utilize Glencoe?
  • 3) If the recommendation was made to you by the Public Works Director to use Glencoe, who made the recommendation to the Public Works Director?
  • 4) Who were the other Landscape Maintenance vendors that were considered to provide temporary services to the City?
  • 5) If Glencoe was the only choice considered, Why was that?
  • 6) Who verified that Glencoe currently meets all of the insurance, liability, equipment and manpower provisions required by the City Standards to perform services?



Please see attached letter.

    Here we go again. Why does Port Orange need a City Council and Mayor? The previous manager railroaded the taxpayers for millions and gave himself and the responsible parties a nice padded retirement. Council didn’t like it but had no say it was the Managers call. The new City manager lets the former Public Utility Director resign with retirement and then tells council he granted himself and others fraudulent time to the tune of a quarter million dollars. Council doesn’t like it but again not their call. Now the mowing issues. Will we once again find that Council has no say? The allegations are serious if they are indeed facts. It appears the new Manager has picked up right where the old one left off. There seems to be a vision disconnect between our Council and Managers. It is shameful for this type of behavior to continue. It is time for City Council to get a grip and operate this City in a responsible fashion. That is what they were elected to do.

    * Is the project manager Ken Hooper the godfather of all the assistant city manager’s children?
    * Was he supplied to the city as a project manager by Sensus Company?
    * Did he have a personal association and friendship with ex-public utilities director Roger Smith?
    * Was Roger Smith and recently fired Field Crew Superintendent, John Diamond who was placed over the meter replacement activities an integral part of Ken Parker’s Sensus meter replacement dream team?
    + Has Ken Hooper recently presented fictitious numbers, unverifiable information, and misinformation to make the dream team’s efforts appear to be a success before the council?
