More Embarassment

The St. Petersburg Times has another story on the lack of due diligence practiced at the State Land Office. Read it and weep.

When will the legislature start looking at this? When the real estate, oil and gas, mining and livestock industry give them permission I guess. There needs to be some due diligence on the careless business deals the land office gets involved in.

Open Meetings Act currently allows municipalities to sign away assets such as airport, water rights, and sewage in a "Special Meeting." See three agreements signed by TORC city commission August 17, 2007, a full year before the "public meeting" where 8K acres of land were annexed and rezoned, and water promised.
