City Council Meeting Sept. 23. at 6 PM
From good sources, privatization of our Garbage is going to be talked about. People are concerned about our utility bills and it always seems garbage is the first to be talked about. Me, I don't know why it costs more to get rid of our water than it does to drink it. But our guys, garbagemen want us to try and help save their jobs by attending this meeting. LW
PS--- You don't have to wait until the very last of the meeting to voice your support of our garbagemen. You may speak at the beginning at citizen comments.
City Council Approves Riverside Marina/Restaurant
At the July 1st meeting, the Edgewater City Council gave final approval for development of a marina and restaurant at 2001 S. Riverside Drive in Edgewater. This site was previously a marina but has been sitting unused for several years.
Many of the opponents of the development felt the project was “too big” for the location and were particularly concerned about inadequate parking. The restaurant will seat up to 150 patrons with 56 parking slots available in addition to 40 boat slips. Local residents were also concerned about the increased traffic and truck deliveries on the small streets.
