Put a lien on all four houses. Someone will tell who the guilty person is.

Ummm. You just can't do that. Law must be followed.

And marching isn't going to "flush" out the perp(s) either.

NO. But no one seems able to prove WHO did it even though they have it narrowed down to FOUR.

It is used buy everyone in the Villages, regardless of where someone lives. It is also used by anyone who chooses to use Morse as their route to go somewhere -- residents and non-residents alike.

So why is only a certain group responsible for the fix? This entire matter defies logic and the same goes for paying for the trees.
Because essentially the areas north and south of 466 are governed differently because of the danged ********

I think if you went to the meeting which explains a CDD form of government that it would be clearer.

Really, the lawsuit is the reason? Read the third paragraph from the attached article and then the rest of it if you wish.

Don't you just hate facts?

I don't think it's an easy matter to just "put a lien on all four houses".
And although it's an appealing suggestion, I doubt you can force innocent people to take a Lie Detector test.
Since the coppers don't seem to be able to "finger a suspect", I think they're probably stymied.

I agree with Chi-Town. "So much time has passed that it is probably just history to those concerned. Nobody there is going to say anything, and it's probably getting close to cold case time with the authorities. Let's hope any fine is negotiable."

Further it will set a precedent It seems that the residents in The Villages are the ones dumped on. The cart paths too narrow well let's ave the residents throw money in to widen them. Improper or no markings o cat path never installed let's get the residents to pay for them. trees down residents, erosion residents

If you lived in your "traditional" town or city, isn't this called property taxes? What's the difference?

Yes, i realize that amenity fees and property taxes are seperate things. My point is regardless of where you live, be it in The Villages or hooterville, USA, the residents of the area are going to be paying for repairs and maintenance of common areas and rightaways. Posters are saying the county should be paying for the repairs to the bridge stucture. Where does one think the county gets its funds? I see this as a distinction without a difference. The residence are going to pay.

you read my mind. That is eactly what I was thinking. Call it what you like but a community pays for its upkeep and ours is very well kept for very reasonable amenity fees, maintenance fees and taxes.
