fiaTo All,
.
Each of you receives numerous requests from individuals such as Ted Notfall, The Gardner’s, Mr. White, and numerous others throughout the year for detailed information and research that requires the time of paid employee’s of the City of Port Orange.  Those requests require the time of individuals to include the City Manager and his immediate staff, Council, the City attorney’s office and staff, Wayne Saunders and his immediate staff, the entire finance staff, just to name a few.  It appears some who are making these numerous requests may be taking advantage! In an effort not to cost the City of Port Orange anymore research or money, yet playing devils advocate, how much do these requests cost the City of Port Orange and in return the TAX PAYERS just for the years of 2013 and 2014!
.
Let’s face it, the wonderful employee’s of our City have a great deal more to do than personal research for a select few that have an agenda!  Does this research for those select few offer anything to the progress, growth, and improvement of the City of Port Orange?  It appears a great deal of tax payer dollars are spent for the “SELECT FEW!” and not the majority of the residents of this fine city!
.
Agenda’s aside, it isn’t about YOU it’s about US!  It’s time to find out!
.
Thank you for your valuable time and with kind regards,
.

  1. ” Personal research ” in a pigs eye.

    I have rarely if ever requested information through the FOI Statutes that would be of interest to only myself or benefit me personally.

    Rather I have requested information that should be of interest to all taxpayers, And the information requested has frequently proved to be indicative of massive non-feasant performance of the part of Manager Kisela and his administration in:

    * FAILING TO DESIGN, IMPLEMENT AND MONITOR ADEQUATE INTERNAL CONTROLS TO SAFEGUARD TAXPAYER INTERESTS;
    * FAILING TO PROPERLY PROPERLY PREPARE MONTHLY FUEL TAX REFUND RETURNS, and .
    * FAILING TO RECONCILE THE CITY’S BANK ACCOUNTS ON A TIMELY BASIS FOR MOST OF LAST YEAR.

    If Ron and Nancy are offended that citizen activists have un-covered these sorts of non-feasant performance perhaps they would tell us to what use they believe the FOI Statutes should be put, AND if they are likewise offended that blogs such as this one publish e-mails detailing this non-feasant performance ??

  2. I believe there are costs associated with the information requests if they exceed a minimum time limit to assemble. Someone please help us on this one.
    Thanks

  3. Please continue with your requests. There are a few of us that are reading and learning about our city and the way it is being run. We need all the information available to us when deciding who are the best people for us and and our city.

    Thank you
