The price tag for the failures of government planning in Indian River are likely to climb this week.
The issue is that the “planners” in Indian River have been busy failing to plan. For the last three years they have failed in their responsibilities while continuing to live off the taxvictims that have failed.
Since they have done nothing the overlords in Indian River would like to pay a lawyer $25,000 in the hopes that the contracts signed by IRC overlords are invalid.
At the County Commission meeting, County Attorney Dylan Reingold will ask commissioners to consider hiring an outside attorney for $25,000 who specializes in Florida law to study any state issues that arise from All Aboard Florida, including the validity of crossing agreements.
The officials are upset that contracts they signed require them to pay crossing upgrades and as honest politicians do they seek to get out of their duties and responsibilities.
Also included in the resolution are concerns the city may have to bear the maintenance costs of upgraded railroad crossings that will be required to allow All Aboard Florida to operate its trains, as well as the costs of maintaining any additional equipment and improvements to implement quiet zones.
The costs of allowing these taxconsumers to live off the rest of us continues to go up.
