Let There Be Light (And Water)

Last night, the Village completed the three year long project to plug in a light on the corner of Hispanola Ave and JFK Causeway.  The event was marked by an inauguration called a "Monument Lighting Ceremony" and was attended by 11 residents and a slightly larger contingent of paid employees.   

The street was blocked off to manage the throng of 20 or so. 

The mayor, a leading thought leader in the power of positivity, made a short speech blaming the lack of light on the previous administration and describing three grueling years of planning, building and execution to put a light in.  Then at 8:30, the switch was thrown and there was light. 

The mayor proudly showed off the biggest accomplishment of the last four years. 

The Positive People know that this was the most important project in North Bay Village, unlike the Negative People who responded to the survey commissioned by the mayor and who show up regularly at the Village Commission meetings.   These Nattering Nabobs of Negativism inexplicably prefer to ask for improved public safety, the restoration of the PAL program, a plan for the Causeway, parks, clean streets and fixes to the sewers.  

Jorge Gonzalez's advice to the Negatives is "If you don't like it, move." and our Mayor, The Arch Beaconess of Light, prefers to dwell on the project that worked. 

In other news, the sewer main in front of Sukura on the Causeway broke yesterday morning and as of the Monument Lighting Ceremony time, was continuing to spill raw sewage on to the Causeway.
