450th planners face residents to answer frequent questions

SPECIAL OFFER FOR HISTORIC CITY NEWS READERS

Despite hollow promises and inflated expectations, starting with fraudulent funding of First America Foundation after they materialized in July 2010; taxpayers now face the reality that the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration has come down to a five-day-long event scheduled for September 4-8.

As Historic City News readers continue to countdown the days until we can finally put a lid on this multi-million dollar money pit, the city has decided to spend a little more money to hold a series of three community town halls:

  • Casa Monica Hotel Ballroom, Tuesday, June 23rd at 5:30 p.m.
  • Visitor Information Center, Tuesday, July 7th at 6:00 p.m.
  • Blackfly Restaurant, Tuesday, July 14th at 5:30 p.m.

No reservations, tickets, or invitation are required.

The still-fluid plans for the events, that never had the benefit of a working master plan, will be presented in a “one-on-one” question-and-answer session — even though the “answers” have been published at www.StAugustine-450.com for several weeks.  The difference will be, at the town halls, you may direct your questions to those who are managing the event.
