VSB Meeting

I hope everyone sees the tape of the VSB  meeting and the lack of expertise from the 2 staff guys, god they couldn't even copy and paste correctly, it was embarrassing, is Panagore asleep at the wheel with these guys? They report to him I guess, what does Radu do anyway?

Tent City

Can someone tell us all what is happening with the many, tarps and tents on Rte 6?  It is getting quite large.   Several days ago they had a huge fire to stay warm which I believe is a violation?

Is anyone monitoring this?  The word is that the town stated its State Property so therefore, there is nothing that can be done...  If thats the case, why in gods name does the town DPW have to clean up after they decide to leave?

The exact same thing happened last year around this time and the DPW had to remove all the crap left behind..  If its state then the DPW should be kept out of it...

They have removed trees, hooked up a toilet with a pipe to the pond and so forth and so on...  Is that an an environmental issue?    How and why is the town allowing this?  Not to mention the area is disgusting.......

Harbor Hill

This Harbor Hill fiasco is so bad it is going to make the Manor look like a bargain.  We'll be lucky if the annual subsidy is only $150,000.  But don't worry about any of the renters.  With what they'll make renting out a room for 120 days in Summer they will do just fine.  $10K for the season?  More maybe?  Sweet deal.  They'll be doing better than the affordable housing crowd.  And way better than actual taxpayers who are footing the bill.

Waxing Philosophical - "Greed is Good"

Posted in town talk by Paul deRuyter, apparently with no irony at all:

The "free market" is not a theory, it is our painful and practical reality and it will always be fueled by unstoppable human nature's desire to advance their position.

David Panagore

Thanks to the Town Manager for creating a "hostile work environment" on the verge of another lawsuit against the town. 

Good job Harvey, oops, I mean David!

He Should Run For President!

It's really kind of funny that people are just now realizing that Anderson is here to basically help himself under the guise of "community building." The only thing he's building is his business and his bank account. Poor people be damned. He should run for president.

Who Hired Panagore?

The BOS and trump.  Blame anyone but yourself.  Who hired Panagore? I cant wait for his glowing review.

Re: Sexual Harassment

"Don't know if it's true, but no one in their right mind would let a town employee date a subordinate...."

Serious?  Under what right?  Constitution be damned?  People can date who they please without dopes like you trying to stop them. Next you'll be railing about "fake news" and stopping TV news that you don't like.

Gloria McPherson

"She needs a place poor child!" 

She has place starts in Nov, as she reported, ( in between whining about the LCP) to BOS.

Harbor Hill

Can't We do anything right?

Harbor Hill is a disaster and so is the Community Center "deal." Harbor Hill is for Erik Yingling, Gloria McPherson-she needs a place poor child!--well they may only need one place like before--oh, except for an added town employee--she can rent for the summer--and also for David Panagore. Ocean views and we are funding the deal. Anyone who voted and advocated for Harbor hill should not be allowed to rent there. It is a conflict of interest.

Harbor Hill

This Harbor Hill thing already reeks to high heaven.  Are they just figuring out that there isn't going to be enough demand?  Everyone was telling them.

There's a shortfall in funding of $150,000/ year but they are going to let people who are making $50-100K pocket money from summer rentals?  Instead of giving it back to taxpayers?  And you know Rafael (cash business) Richter and his cousin, each of which just inherited a ton of money, are going to be first in line for apartments.

Summer renters?  Ha.  If I were renting a unit I'd advertise in Boston for a house share in Provincetown for the summer.  Nothing in the rules preventing it.  I may get my entire annual rent paid.

Taxpayers are chumps.

So Many Cry Babies in This Town

Grow up people. If someone has a different opinion or wants to argue their point accept their differences. For a town that preaches tolerance and acceptance I do not see that much of it. BTW, former BOS members that posted political views all the time on fb in the past really need to grow a pair.

Panagore

If megan kelly can't make it at NBC we should send them Panagore.  Bloviator with no clue how to lead.

I can't believe the Tourism Director is still here.  Talk about not doing your job!

Donegan Speaking Alt Fact

Right before our very eyes the Year Round Rental Housing Trust is becoming WORKFORCE HOUSING.

Anderson bemoaned the need for WH and stated that HH will help fill the need for workforce housing.

<NOTE:  According to the BOS/TM:  Panagore gave Hatch the Community Center because we needed a media center, not workforce housing.>

But, if that were not bad enough, Tom Donegan and the BOS will allow the 26 renters at Harbor Hill to take in summer roommates and keep all the money from them while the taxpayer subsidizes their living space.  Because that's the Provincetown way. 

He said: "Taking in summer roommates has been a long practiced tradition to make housing affordable to year round residents.
The idea of having a summer worker live with residents (not subetting) was widely discussed in the public hearings and was included in the Town Meeting presentation. During those meetings, the concept of summer roommates was very well received by residents and businesses owners alike."

He has ZERO PROOF that it was MENTIONED at Town Meeting.  IT WAS NOT.  DONEGAN IS A LIAR!

As for "well received"   a show of hands, who thinks we should pay to subsidize housing so people can make money on the side? 

There's a hand.   Mr. Anderson

You may recall, the BOS gave him 78 additional seats for his restaurant.  But that Mr. Anderson is so generous he will be fostering a  roommate matching service for his employees  Of course they will get priority in the eligibility process, but that's the Panagore way.  Rules are for the little people.

Self serving.  Hatch got the Community Center.  Yingling picking out his Harbor Hill unit.  Anderson filling the beds with Canadian summer workers.  And Anthony.   would it kill you to say something? Anything?  If you didn't move your arm during the meeting, I'd have thought you were sleeping.
 
There is so much corruption in our BOS.   Drain our swamp.

350 Bradford

"It is disgusting and threatening abutters reveals how they play and the dirty games they are involved in."

But isnt it exactly the above what the abutters did to the 350 Bradford Streets developers???  To threaten with pursuing legal action, etc?

Guess not only the abutters can play this game, huh?

Lack of Affordable Housing

The angry Lesbian who wrote about the lack of affordable housing is correct! Straight & elderly are in the same boat! mercenaries here are gouging rents that are obscene! Some are charging nearly $4,000 mo. for 1  person & are not allowed to share expenses with anyone else to further burden the water/elec. costs in old places without any amenities! There should be a ceiling on Winter or Year Round! Owners get top dollar in season & want the same amt.for Winter rental also saying they can get it by placing their property with "Home Away" & other Agencies that rent to wealthy for Holidays! Further displacing residents from More affordable Winter rentals! Something must be done! Some places have Ceiling Rentl Boards!
8:44 pm edt 

Harbor hill.

Anderson is making it workforce housing because his employees need housing.   It was supposed to be for year rounders.  Cheryl  said 6 weeks away isnt enough.  They need to sublet and make money while the Town pays the bills. 

Another bait and switch Panagore style. 
8:42 pm edt 

What the .........?

Just watched the joint meeting with the BOS/FINCOM/and the Trust.
OMG> Anderson has written the trust rules for his employees.  "workforce housing" won't count in your income.  You pay less, make more, and the TOWN picks up the tab.  Am I missing something?
