2. CITY COUNCIL MEETING, January 22, Tuesday (Monday is a Holiday). Pay close attention to what your local officials are trying to pull off.  A MEGA Assisted Living Facility facility on a barrier Island.  In a storm event where do you evacuate 160 patients to?  Less than 2% of ALL the ALF's in the US are as large as they are proposing and City  staff has recommended    DISAPPROVAL on so many levels.  The rumors of conflicts of interest and back-room deals are numerous and should be explored!
