First it was disclosing his old campaign violation fine from 2004 that he blew off. Then it was the voting fraud violation and fine in 2014. Now it is he financial disclosure filings. Haynes is just lucky that he was not nailed for all the counts of non-disclosure and saved by the late rules change. They should name the latest rule change as the “Haynes Rule” in his honor. Haynes is a damn deadbeat all the way around! Here is the size 11 up your ass. So much for your legacy at Lauderdale Lakes  and what your plague will say.

Stormwater is receiving $350,000 in support from the GF through a transfer? No way in hell. And both Sold Waste and Stormwater have direct salaries charged to those funds so it is not that. Both Solid Waste and Stormwater are enterprise funds and costs can only be allocated to them by the amount of service they receive from the GF. In … Read More

Following this is like following a bouncing ball. The CRA is going to give 3 acres of Commerce Park to the city so Somerset Drive can become a public roadway. But hold on, Somerset Condominiums did improvements and maintains Somerset Drive and holds easement.

A solid waste in Lauderdale Lakes

Once again solid waste will be awash in solid waste fees and the residents not seeing any benefit. Just like when Allen was really there and special assessments were jacked up making residents pay through the nose just so Allen could set on restricted cash to cover other deficits.
