The politics here (I have realized now thru the years) quirky and so slow...almost backward- paranoid? Guys in suits...

Just responded on the survey because I didn't read this article first. Allowing food vendors in the city parks whenever they choose to be there is a mistake. Food vendors can be an asset during special events in parks however they don't belong there all of the time. I go to city parks to relax and enjoy the scenery, I don't go to buy a slurpie/icee or an overpriced hotdog or lemonade. The ordinance started out an a request to have a hotdog vendor on a corner downtown and an ice cream truck driving on city streets selling ice cream. If I remember correctly, Mr. Vukovic was against those measures too. How did this ordinance morph into selling in city parks? This is a huge mistake by the current council and one that will come back to haunt them when people complain about vendor presence in parks. Starting right now.

Perhaps the city should consider publishing the ordinances in The Anchor where they might receive a more reasonable rate, especially since they've done so much for Dr. Anderson already?

The Anchor will be a memory soon. Anderson hasn't paid bills on many, if any, of his businesses, including Anchor staff, in months, some even in more than a year. Don't get why his tenants, creditors, and employees have let it go on this long! He's got unbelievable gall!

Marietta and the ordinance saga is beyond belief. Why can't businesses have tables,vendors sell hot dogs & ice cream. Vendors have designated hours/days and chairs moved inside when the businesses close. Really is it that difficult?

Has council forgotten that if they don't meet their legal obligations they get sued and it costs more than complying with the original issue? Come on fellas, get your heads out of your collective but(t)s! Follow the law!
