MORE CORRUPTION IN NORTH PORT
The City of North Port was created with only 10 days residency (instead of 6 months) and vote by General Development Corporation employees in 1959. These employees were brought to houses newly constructed by GDC. They were moved into them so they could vote the City into existence.
Why the urgency to create a MUNICIPAL CORPORATION, the City of North Port?
Well there was now a government controlled by the parent corporation which could collect money for roads, could look the other way on inspections and could RE-ZONE LAND!
GDC was originally Chemical Research Corporation in 1952. What chemicals were they researching and where were they disposed of?
IT IS VERY CONVENIENT FOR CORPORATIONS TO CONTROL GOVERNMENTS! (Just ask BP)
In 1990 GDC went bankrupt and corporate officers went to FEDERAL PRISON. In the early ’90’s GDC reorganized as Atlantic Gulf Communities Inc. They retained ownership of the NORTH PORT LANDFILL which GDC leased to the City of North Port from the ’60’s to the ’80’s. It was closed in 1986 and there is no mention on the Internet that it ever existed.
In 1997, Maggie Gamez began questioning what was in the old landfill when she found out the entire 800 acre property (25 acres was landfill) WAS UP FOR A LAND USE CHANGE! She wrote all over expressing her concern regarding stories brought to her by citzens, past down in their families, that in the ’40’s FERMI Lab brought down nuclear waste in barges and returned with phosphate to be used in making the atomic bombs for WWII.
She was concerned because she discovered that the North Port Landfill, like one other landfill in Florida, was showing unexplained levels of radiation. She was concerned about what chemicals could be buried there as well. She worried about the drinking water.
She was concerned because no one was monitoring the monitoring wells. The City of North Port said that AGC was to monitor landfill and AGC said they had an agreement with the City for them to monitor for contaminants.
Mrs. Games was also concerned that these monitoring wells would be destroyed by new construction.
HERON CREEK, the “jewel” of North Port is built on this land fill. The golf course is on top of the trash heap! The country club is built into its side.
IN 1997 THE CITY OF NORTH PORT VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO REZONE A LAND FILL TO A COUNTRY CLUB AND RESIDENTIAL AREA!
The City fines residents out of existence if our numbers on the mail box are not 2 inches high (FOR OUR PROTECTION) while The City fails to monitor this old landfill!
WHAT’S THE CODE VIOLATION FOR THAT NORTH PORT?
They are using the guise of public safety to fine us and get our property and money. They don’t care about public safety! MONEY MONEY MONEY is all they want.
WOULD YOU LIVE ON AN OLD LANDFILL FILLED WITH NO ONE KNOWS WHAT?
NORTH PORT YOU HAVE SOME “SPLAININ” TO DO!
City Commissioner Jonathan Lewis that approves these regulation and as well as appointing the Chief of police Kevin Vespia and wasting tax payers hard earn dollars on high price city Attorney Rob Robinson
