Recently an ex-employee of Marco Island government has indirectly harassed over 350 Marco Island residents. To get back at city government, he submitted complaints of code violations of sidewalks of over 350 residents. Normally, a single person would notice a sidewalk that could potentially cause a trip or fall. That person could then request the city to inspect the sidewalk for a code violation. A violation could be a simple grind of the cement to level the offending joint. However it could entail a complete replacement costing $5,000. So a single person has used this procedure to harass over 350 families to cause problems for the city of Marco Island.
