List of Non-Profits in DeBary: NON-PROFITS LINK
7/31/12 at the 57th minute of the Workshop:
VM Carson: “I want to thank you guys (City Staff) for breaking down those tasks…that’s great… for a Council that thinks they know everything…but really don’t.”
VM Carson:“...Council members think they know everything…past and present…and they don’t.”
Mort Culligan on what "free" means:
Is there any truth to the rumor that the IRS has been calling around DeBary looking for Mort because they are about to have job openings in their non profit division? LOL
Thank and help this Yankee...
New Yorker Samuel Frederick deBary - he was honored by naming our City after him. Now his home needs our help:

Carson, Hunt, Mother, Wife and Non-Profits:
"Perception is reality."
A favorite quote by CM Carson...perhaps not anymore:
Reaction to Council's Consideration to buy land:
Splash Pad: A Distraction
Tonight at the workshop the Mayor related that he witnessed two near auto accidents as people slowed down to look at the Splash Pad while they drove by. Now the City is looking at signs or flashing lights to warn drivers. On opening day for the Splash Pad a policeman was there with cones to slow traffic down; he was there until late afternoon and I can't imagine that this safeguard will always be happening. The Splash Pad is an attractive nuisance that distracts drivers' attention away from the road, pedestrians, etc, and it is for THIS reason that many citizens told the Council to put the Splash Pad somewhere else - they didn't listen.
With two near misses already in the opening weeks, what tragedy will this City have to bear before it realizes that although the Splash Pad in and of itself may have been a good idea, the location is detrimental to safe driving while being a lure for children to cross 17/92 at the same time.
Lastly, CM Hunt said emphatically that DeBary has "ugly buildings". Which buildings, CM Hunt and who are you to say? And people call me insulting? Those "ugly buildings" are businesses that employ people and pay taxes. They are an investment of sweat and tears. And you call them "ugly"? Incredible. So what's the plan: have the government buy them all up?
But hey, it's going to be a hell of a fireworks display this year...and what started out as "it won't cost taxpayers a penny" is now up to 25K. It just kind of...happened...
Also "just kind of happening", the Council is moving forward to buy three lots (400K) on 17/92 - for the sheriff substation - this was discussed at the workshop - it should have been a regular City Council meeting agenda item. A consensus at a workshop is a vote at a regular meeting - stop slipping things through and prepping City Council meeting agenda items at workshops - this Council went from two meetings a month to...two meetings a month - they just now call one of those meetings a "Workshop". It's disingenuous: Not straightforward or candid; insincere or calculating. Just go back to two regular City Council meetings a month...
Mort has a triple play on crime and people living in tents in DeBary:
