Open Mic

Here is where you can spout off about anything that’s on your mind. Keep it civil, though. Integrity and manners are not dead yet. If you want to be an idiot, do it on the Sun-Sentinel’s site. They seem to attract them.

    Home break-ins. Got a call from BSO (CC) the other day advising of break-ins at homes that had no cars in the driveway. Perps knock on the door and if no one answers they pop in. If someone answers they ask for a person (who doesn’t live there) and leave apologizing or whatever. Do you appreciate getting advisory calls like this or does it just make you nervous?

    John did you vote for background checks in Cooper City and are you for or against amendment four?

    Why do Gary Laufenberg and Melissa Menga have campaign signs posted in the Town of Davie? Are they expecting to get some votes out of Davie?

      Gene, did you know that John has signs posted in Davie too. Stirling and Pine Island.

        That is Cooper City…nice try

        The Southeast corner of Stirling and Pine Island (empty lot is cows on it) is Davie. Otherwise why did John post a pond in the Town of Davie for $300.00.

        That corner is part of the Monterra development which was annexed into Cooper City a few years back. Regarding posting of a bond in Davie, I have no idea. Perhaps you should ask him.

      • Gene, I was offered the property at Stirling & Pine Island to place a sign by the owners. Unfortunately, Davie requires a bond, and I chose to pay it and adhere to the law, unlike my opponents. After the owner (along with several small business owners in our city) was blatantly and repeatedly harassed by our illustrious commission members, and their supporters, they decided to have all signs removed. Apparently, from what I have been told, the Mayor is going around town basically threatening business owners who have my signs posted. I have asked for my bond back from the City of Davie…It’s unfortunate our city has to still put up with this dirty game of ‘politricks’ by our residents and opponents.

        I stand corrected

  4. As far as bulk pickup, it needs to be cut back. For the amount of bulk trash and the frequency of pickup, we don’t need it as often.


    • Posted by Gene Dyer on October 15, 2010 at 10:30 am

      I disagree. Bulk pick-up for lawn and landscape waste should happen on a weekly basis. Bulk pick-up for all other materials should be scaled back to once per quarter or twice per year.


      • Gene, I won’t disagree, however, bulk pickup is apparently not meant or suited for yard waste. If that were the case, we probably would need it more often, not less. I would rather see two large containers for those items than increased frequency of bulk pickup. Then, we can renegotiate the contract, saving us all our hard earned tax dollars. I am all ears pal!

        They should pay us for the yard waste. If pick up for yard waste is eliminated, then I DEMAND that the city allow me to keep a small utility trailer on my property without having to hide it from view.

    Bulk pickup is a hoot. We pay for a pickup every month but if there is ANYTHING of value, the scoopers are out there in a flash picking up old sinks, bikes, furniture and much more. Seems like the only thing left for the Waste Management guys is old wood fences, shrubs and tree limbs. What have you picked up from the curb?


    • RE: Your Home Page Comment “Did you know that the two commissioners who voted AGAINST the recently passed tax increase are John Sims and Lisa Mallozzi? Does that fact help you make a voting decision? I have received and traded emails with John several times. He is responsive, he certainly seems to care about the city. Unfortunately he is not MY commissioner.” Be advised that the election is an AT LARGE election. This means that you can vote for ANY commissioner, not just those in your district. Thanks!
