Regarding beach parking (March 19 Herald report, "Residents, business owners react to AMI paid parking plan").
Let me just suggest this to the Anna Maria City Commission: Since you seem so set on protecting YOUR island from the great unwashed masses, start raising private money now for your next beach renourishment project.
Because I, for one, am going to do everything I can to see that my tax money is no longer available to you for renewing YOUR beaches on YOUR island.
I would invite everyone, including island residents and merchants, to help remind the Anna Maria City Commission and mayor just who makes their lifestyle possible.
Never miss a local story.
