Unless you are asserting that the last 4 bullets give the towns rights that they do not already have, then this is not a compromise--the state is giving up nothing. Maybe you should just thank...

The Pure Watercraft pontoons at $45-65K, to be shipped in 2022(?) look competitive, with pluses and minuses compared to gas. I could see buying one for the silence and convenience. Definitely need...

Begun to rise? They've skyrocketed!

1,000 new Florida residents/day is a big number. But it's nothing compared to the average daily covid cases--now at 58,000 for Florida. Even if every...

Just to be clear--the bill in the link prohibits towns from banning short term rentals--it is a pro AirBNB bill. It will drive up the price of workforce housing as you warn

We spent years renting for a week or two at a time before we bought our place, so I'm sympathetic to short term rentals.
