Usually there are many meetings to determine how to spend our money.
With reports of status, who said what and sometimes even why.
In this specific case TV responded very quickly with what they were going to do and how much it was going to cost with not much more info than that.

I don't understand. If there was a fine, then paying it is the only solution, right?

What scenario could be different? The lots with the view were sold and had been sold for many years, so giving someone a clear view at this point couldn't profit the developers, right? How could The Morses gain from this tree cutting? I can't think what you are getting at, Bille.

This likely is just a case of a permit violation. The VCDD is the permittee regardless of who actually cut down the trees. The permittee pays up and then considers what further action to take.

Contact your CDD/ elected reps and request strongly that the pressure be continued on this issue. Raise the reward to $10,000=$1000 from each obligated district.

It might be in the Developers best interest to join in the reward contribution.

This looks like a rumor waiting to happen.
You heard from someone you consider reliable.......but you DO NOT know if it is true or not?????????
Just think - if there was a permit application, don't you think the dectective would look into that??

The trees have been replaced at the cost of roughly $50,000, according to a new article in the on-line news.

Hi Polar Bear:

The VCCDD is we. We paid for the party but never got invited.

I'm pretty sure they teach that in Basic Detective School.

Have you solved the mystery yet?
What do you think the solution is?
I think it would take a reward of over $10,000 to loosen some lips.

Duh! Whose view(s) benefitted from the trees being cut down? Why not start there? How about "free golf for life - at the country clubs".

From the online news the CDD 5 officials are not giving up. Kudos to them!

I don't understand that part. Usually you and I are on the same page, but that puzzles me.

I was struck again by the fact that so many think the whole village of Lake Miona are " in on it". I think that a lot are as sure as those who don't live there as to who did it, like most of us are sure who did it, but we have so many loud motor sounds going on in our neighborhood with edgers and blowers and trimmers, unless you were looking at something, you wouldn't know a tree was being cut on. You have to go to sumterpa.com to look at the map to see that those trees were on a little Island behind the properties.

I am just thinking it unjust to blame other innocent people for covering up something they had no real knowledge of.

And the part I am reading on the online news of people blaming people for a cover-up who live in a larger home who they think are the "monied rich" is REALLY unfair.

Someone on that street has knowledge of this act. While the whole village is not in it I find it unbelievable that that many people saw nothing. I thought the oaks must have been relatively small but after taking a ride thru there the other day I saw these trees were huge. If this was a ghetto thing folks would be all over the "don't snitch" ethos but because it's concerning the wealthiest of TV they get a pass.
