This is not acceptable. Mayor Stanczyk needs to immediately drop her self-proclaimed allegations of government in the Sunshine or “transparency.” Palmetto Bay has gone fully opaque under her and Brian Pariser's terms of office.
Information can be made available to Palmetto Bay residents without giving up “trial tactics” or “attorney / client privileged” information. Mrs. Stanzcyk was able to speak with the press for the July 7, article Appeals court slams ‘intransigent’ Palmetto Bay council. Herald Reporter Howard Cohen interviewed Shelley Stanczyk on potential next steps: “Right now, it’s hard to say,” Mayor Stanczyk said. Legally, the village could apply for a rehearing or ask the state Supreme Court to hear the case.
“We haven’t had an opportunity to meet with Eve and haven’t had a chance to meet with the manager,” Stanczyk said. The council is expected to meet Monday night at its next regular council meeting. “The five of us have to make that determination,” she said.
OK, so NOW you can talk to the press, after all those previsous cautions that you had to keep tight lipped. Don’t tell us how you are going to do it, but you can tell the residents as to whether you have accepted the jurisdiction and the decisions of the courts (plural) or whether we are moving forward incurring more costs and attorney’s fees. Obviously the Palmer litigants will know, if you are either negotiating or will be pursuing additional appellate review, so why subject interested taxpayers to further delay?
Additionally for those looking for background, why is the village litigation page currently removed from the public view?

Please also review my prior posing Thursday, April 12, 2012 posting: I invite Mayor Shelley Stanczyk and Vice Mayor Brian Pariser to watch a video of the Wednesday, April 11, 2012 press conference and learn how to communicate information concerning court cases to the public. It can be done. Here is a good example:
Franz Kafka would be proud. The Stanczyk method of “transparency” reads like the Kafka novel: “The Trial."
