    5349 Howard Creek Rd Sarasota, FL, 34241, USA - Sarasota County
    This green gate and the fence to the right of it was put up last week and blocks a county drainage easement and ditch. This man has does this because he does not want walkers, bike riders, or horse riders going by his house. He runs an illegal carpentry/cabinet making business out of his garage and doesn't want to get reported again. He's already been told to shut it down before. The county has been called for a second gate that illegally blocks the drainage easement trail behind his house, but has been threatened by this bully, so they don't do anything. This is unacceptable. This easement cannot have a closed gate and I am sick of this man being able to get away with bending the rules to suit himself. We must all abide by the law, he is not special and does not get a hall pass to do what he wants.
  • Bar in Garage Archived
    7433 Bounty Dr Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Gulf Gate Estates


    I wanted to report that the owner of this home has a bar in his garage (which I know is not bad) but during the pandemic he is having parties with more than a couple of people in the late afternoons. The garage/bar is crowded and with him being a bar owner, I am certain he is having some of his usual patrons there. IT is disconcerting because while most of us in the neighborhood are adhering to the rules, they are doing just the opposite.

    There is a slime trail from this failed pizzeria location, the business failed bigly, to the Gulf Gate location. The own should be made to clean it up. On an up note the smell is now gone.
