St. Augustine Beach Planning and Building Department Brandishes Developer Ad on its Wall

At the July 2, 2018 St. Augustine Beach City Commission meeting, local architect Craig Thomson spoke in non-agenda public comment and revealed that there's a big fat advertising poster for a local developer on the wall of the St. Augustine Beach Planning and Building Department.  (Photo credit: Craig Thomson).  

Developer ads on the wall of a department that's supposed to regulate developers.

  • That's an appearance of impropriety. 
  • No advice from City Attorney JAMES PATRICK WILSON, a/k/a "MINIMUM JIM." 
  • No explanation or apology from City Manager BRUCE MAX ROYLE.  
  • No inquiry from Mayor UNDINE PAWLOWSKI-GEORGE or Commissioners attending the meeting.  
  • No documents exist on why this happened.
  • No policies exist on approval for such crass commercialism.
  • Reminds me of the large photos in the Florida State Senate corridors extolling "Florida development."
  • In West Virginia, coal companies own the government.
  • In Florida, developers own the government.
  • They're both enemies of the people and create environmental nightmares.
  • We, the People are watching MAX ROYLE and the ME-Publican Lords of All They Survey in St. Augustine Beach.
