It seems the Eiley's have secured their dredge permits and will be starting again on their new barge compound on the the front of the island in Boca Ciega.

I don't understand it. They have been using the facility in the back of the island. So what the heck is the problem? The beach in front of the Club Caribbean subdivision is going to be covered with silt and muck while they dredge and for some time afterward. Will they do anything to prevent this?

I just wonder if ANYONE has ever been denied a permit to dredge?

Only Gringos or those not related to someone in power. Same as everywhere else. But hey administrator before you censor/delete this tread...consider this. It is becoming increasingly difficult to get anything brought over and delivered from the mainland. The lack of transport for everything from rebar, concrete, gatorade, foodstuffs, and everything in between is a real problem.....and it is still slow season. Sure wish the powers that be and others with a vested interest in doing business could get together and come up with a solution. Time to stop pointing fingers and try to find a solution that will both keep the environment safe and keep the island alive with the day to day necessities. Wishful thinking....a pipe dream??? Surely Hope Not.

Just last week they said they couldn't bring down a neighbors container because the roads were too bad. (DUH) What do they think they are going to do when they have to bring all their shipments into town? "when the roads are too bad"
Real smart move

The light has come on for many of us now. The new barge location in Boca Ciega is for the new "South Beach" development. Mr. Pearce has interest lagoon dredging South, so it would make sense he has interest in this barge location. They have been grading roads, cutting mangroves and clearing for this new development as we speak. Looks like Mr. Pearce won't need those cargo cars

I don't understand what you mean by Mr. Pearce having an interest in the Eiley dredging. He has his own dredging operation a few hundred feet north. He is also using the barge landing with Mash right by his dredge operation. Are they going to start using both?
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered. I'm hopefully going to try and find these answers next week.

Sorry for the mis-information on the dredging locations. The person reporting was confused on the two locations and thought he had the one accross the road from you, JZB. It sure makes sense they would use the barge further South, it being closer and not having to go thru the terrible mud boggs in rainy season.

No more mud bogs! Mr. Pearce (or Pierce?) has been going nuts with his new road grader. We now have the nicest non-paved roads on the island! How long will it last? Only time will tell.
