On Jan 16, Margate City Solicitor, John Scott Abbott, updated commissioners on efforts to rebuild the beloved Margate Boardwalk.
Listen as Solicitor Abbott speaks in code….until Commissioner Amodeo asked: what are you talking about? Listen to AUDIO >
Abbott: they want to place a non-binding question on the ballot. ‘The Initiative request was withdrawn by proponents,’ referring to Glenn Klotz and the Margate Boardwalk Committee (MBC).
Abbott: They have the right to do that under law. They withdrew. City Clerk Johanna Casey agreed.
Abbott: The ball’s in their court. (referring to Klotz & MBC)
This critical item was not mentioned on the agenda, which seems to be consistently posted at the last minute. Residents say this keeps attendance low at Margate Commission & Planning Board meetings.
Oddly, Margate public meetings start at 4p. Way too early for the average person to attend. Most other towns start their meetings at 6pm.
