This letter is in response to Mr. Katz's letter to the editor.
IVGID and the fire department are separate entities, separate issues. As far as I know, the Village League to Save Incline Assets was created for a clear purpose and directed its energies toward that mission. The League had no interest in IVGID and the Fire Department; it was not organized as a gadfly or to continue on in perpetuity to take on any and every fight where it saw rates being raised — i.e. if Charter wants an increase or the electric company petitions to raise rates =, or the school lunch program is going increase prices because eggs and milk have gone up because of gas prices.
Oh, my argument digresses. But what of Mr. Katz’s arguments? Is his letter, there’s more than a $15 raise in our recreation fees — which is then checked by the decrease in beach fees. Regarding Mr. Katz’s warning: One does not have to be Edgar Cayce to know that when the county runs out of money, it’s going to put it back on the taxpayers. But what does that have to do with the league? Are you saying that they should not have taken up their cause to right a wrong?
From my perspective and experiences, we have first rate facilities/professionals/services at bargain prices through IVGID. Our beaches are national treasures. Have you taken a look at the costs of a private clubs where you get some golf, tennis courts and a swimming pool? I have lived here for more than 30 years. I have raised 3 kids. My son is now raising his own family here. I thank Mr. Katz for trying to save me from the Bogeyman, but I just don’t see the monster.
