    I say his honeymoon is over July 1. If he doesn't have a handle on what needs to be done by then he is the wrong man for the job. That's 15 working days to come up with something.

    Tom, the announcement is only 2 days old but he's been in place for a while now.

    I've been wondering lately how much money the Pier is losing everyday by not being repaired? This time of year I would guess in excess of $2000 Dollars a day. Anybody else care to make a guess?

    I’d like to see how many visitors per day in the June before the renovations started as opposed to this June, or even compare the two months of May, before and now.

    I say give the guy some time to see for himself. It's good as the old guy was sunset to retirement it sounds like. If not, a simple invite might enlighten him.

    Superintendent Matt Young returned my call and we had about a 20 minute conversation. During our talk, Matt said he would be glad to meet with pier users to discuss where the state is in the repair process. I could tell y’all everything he told me but, it would take up too much space and, he can explain it much better than I can.

    I gathered that Mr. Young understands all the moving parts of the rebuild process and is determined to do all he can to push things along. I ask all of you to call or email his office and encourage a meeting so we all understand what is and what is not happening. Matt suggested a place like Sea and Suds or the little restaurant on the pier to have this get together. Calls and emails from just me isn’t going to do it. I posted his contact info in this thread.

    Lastly, my hat goes off to Matt for even calling me back. Let’s make this meeting happen. I think you all will feel better about the process.
