HOW CHARLIE CABLER AND SANTANA TORRES THROUGH MISMANAGEMENT AND LACK OF PROPER PLANNING EXACERBATED THE ILLEGAL DUMPING PROBLEM AFTER DOLLY 

 From the BV 2008 - Only the BV has been covering the Santana Torres issue since at least 2008. Good things are coming. I am feeling good about the new City Manager and Police Chief. Now all we need to do its get Trey Mendez, Ismael Hinojosa, and Pat Ahumada on the City Commission and competency will become he new word in hiring at the COB.

CHARLIE CABLER AND SANTANA TORRES ARE FAILING THE CITY DURING THE POST DOLLY CLEANUP -

 Some things are out of the control of Cabler and Santana. For example my trash pickup which is normally on Saturday occurred on Sunday. There is a lot of trash. The city can only do so much. Along these lines, on Saturday I took three truck loads of palm branches to the landfill. The more of us who take our own brush to the landfill the faster Public Works can get the city clean. At some point we the people need to help with the process instead of getting in the way. This is where Cabler and Torres failed the city. I notice people were dumping their brush along Robindale and Old Port Isabel road. I am thinking all they have to do is shoot down 802 to the landfill, what is the problem? The problem is, City Manager Cabler and Public Works Director Torres decided it is better that the people in the county dump their brush on city or county roads or in drainage ditches than waive the fee to dump their brush in the city land fill. I can hear it now, "they are not part of the city so why should they be permitted to dump their brush for free?" Fine, now the city will pay BFI to collect all of this extra brush illegally dumped on the side of the road and in the drainage ditches. It is only your tax dollars being wasted. Are you happy now? Further the county is going to have to pay to have the brush illegally dumped on the side of roads in the county. Cabler and Torres have failed to create a policy for efficient pick-up of bulk trash within the city before hurricanes. In real cities wherein you have a city manager with a Masters in Public Administration and a director over Public Works who is more than a high school graduate the policy is, everyone is given a week of the month when their bulk trash will be picked up. You are allowed to put your bulk trash out 3 days early. This way the bulk trash in never out more than a total of 10 days, and in most cases no more than 6 days.

VOTE FOR PROGRESS AND MEANINGFUL CHANGE
