A list of 10 for the Adults in Indiantown

TAM believes there are some things that need to be said to the adults in the room.


The childish sense of racial empowerment by some members of the Village Council is a problem.


The idea of being owed something and or having an expectation of someone else paying for your things is wrong. Entitlement is amoral and no one owes you a thing.


A door of graciousness in the face of belligerence has afforded an opportunity of amicable end to a divisive matter.


Continued demands are going to cause all lose of any further good faith effort on the majority of the Commission.

Subject: BOCC meeting direction today


Today, the Board of County Commissioners gave me direction to reach out to you and communicate to you that they are offering $300,000 per year for a 5 year agreement – we will develop an Interlocal agreement for the funds – a total of $1.5M, that will be targeted to be used for your utility improvements that would benefit fire flow in Indiantown – which would enhance fire rescue’s ability to respond when providing fire and emergency services. We would create the Interlocal for the funding, and then we would expect the Village to amend their ordinance to be included in the Fire Rescue MSTU to have a 5-year term – rather than the provision to be terminated upon notice on May 1. Commissioner Jenkins brought this up during his comments and Commissioners Ciampi, Hetherington & Smith approved it. Their hope is that the Council will embrace this, and we can all move forward.

We do not have another meeting until May 11, so if you can get this to your Council, and provide us with a response, then we will begin the creation of the Interlocal.

I am in the meeting today, but if you wish to discuss further, just let me know.

A continuation of expenditure, due diligence and any other workshop the Village engage in regarding Fire Rescue will be seen as a waste of the people’s money and a threat to safety setting the stage for potential recall elections.


If the Council does not publicly solidify a deal in the very near future with the County for 2022, it has been said that the political will of the Council majority is to move ahead with privatization next year.


Budget consideration is proposed to the tune of 1.8 million, to be spent between the beginning of the next budget cycle and October of 2022 for further steps to solidify the costs of Fire Rescue privatization.


Allowing the consultant that has a large fiduciary interest in the outcome of the negations with the County to intervene in the negotiations is unethical and reprehensible.



Continued employment of a marginal City manager will cost the tax payers a great deal of money in the near term.

Lack of involvement on a person’s part to be aware of the actions of the ruling, will lead to lose of freedom as the ruled.

Susan Gibbs Thomas Talks Fire Rescue with Tony Z

Here is the latest information from Susan Gibbs-Thomas as it relates to the on going saga fire rescue boondoggle. It is actually good news and Susan is to thank for the outcome.

We would like to thank the Martin County Commission for exercising some mature postures through the process. We would also like to thank them for the effort they made to help bring resolution to this for the good of the community.

The Martin County Board of County Commissions discussion regarding the proposed resolution on Fire Rescue is below.

Why is Howard Brown Still Employed in Indiantown?

The following is a top level overview of the events that occurred in Opa-Locka while on Howard Browns Watch as an Acting Assistant Manager and a Senior top level employee from 2010 until 2014 according to documentation provided to TAM from OPA-LOCKA sources and CBS 4 Miami News Reports.

Here is Howard’s Resume:  Howard_W._Brown

Notice in the resume the departments he said he was in charge of:

(2010 – 2014)Directly supervised and managed Police, Human Resources, IT, Finance, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Planning and Community Development, Code Enforcement, and Building and Licenses Departments.”

(2013-2014) “Oversaw Planning, Community Development, Building and Licensing Departments, and directed outside engineering firms, handling the City’s design, planning, and building inspection.” –

The same departments at the heart of the investigation during the time of the investigation.

Someone either thought him a blind fool or they knew he was a “go along to get along” kind of guy. He was in charge of the department during the peak of the corruption.

Here are more links to information about the collusion and criminality that was rampant while Howard was in a top level leadership role in Opa-Locka.


April 22nd Council Meeting Council Corner Wrap up

This episode includes some brief commentary and public comments. We also have a slide show of pictures of the protest from our own Local Photography Wiz Jennifer Smith.

So strap yourself in and hang on as we go down the rabbit hole one more time.

Editors Note:Please notice that not one of the speakers violated the 3 minute rule.

Unlike the Mayor Janet Hernandez who when she last spoke at the last County Commission meeting, to which she was not invited, ignored the County Chairman and rambled for minutes over the 3 minutes even after being asked to wrap it up. In that diatribe she blamed the Commission for being racists. What about CIVILITY madame Mayor? – Editor – TAM
