Citizens’ Voice: Sept. 13

“I see that our city officials want to raise property taxes again so they can hire more people! Don’t they realize that landlords will just pass this along by raising rents? If they really wanted affordable housing they would lower property taxes!” “Thank you to The Citizen for following ethical[…]

“Let me get this straight. You can ship 35,000 pounds to the Bahamas on a container for $4,500, but these guys are bringing 3,000 pounds for $8,000? On top of that, they have a photographer on the team screaming at everyone on Facebook about how they know what they are[…]

“Of course there’s going to be metered parking at Smathers. The greed of this city will always win. Try naming one instance where locals are taken into consideration.” “Someone actually thinks that adding more parking meters will cause our tax rates to go down. What a joke. The city is[…]

“At long last the city is beginning, albeit haltingly, to enforce the HARC guidelines on Duval Street. Get rid of the multicolored neon, the papered-over windows, glaring strip lights and the computer monitor advertising flashing at passersby. It all looks awful. It isn’t the Mall on Duval hurting these businesses[…]

Citizens’ Voice: Sept. 5

“Never underestimate the power of friends and networking. A friend of my daughter reached out to us on Instagram from Eleuthera. That was the only way he could contact us. He reported three persons stuck in a flooded house for three days in Spanish Wells, one with a broken leg.[…]

Citizens’ Voice: Sept. 4

“Am getting the feeling the town is really losing its way about servicing the citizens of Key West. As a homeowner willing to do my own work, I comply and submit a simple permit request with very clear detailed plans and meeting all requirements and I see contractor permits getting[…]

Citizens’ Voice: Sept. 3

“I am very disappointed to read about the installation of parking meters along the beach and behind the courthouse. I am a Big Coppitt resident and Key West is my city where I go to do everything. Can I get that parking pass? Hell, no. This is greed, pure and[…]
