STAY ALERT AND VIGILANT

Idea

City Island Images has some advice for elected officials and public servants everywhere. Pay more attention to individuals and companies operating illegally and show some flexibility to those law abiding citizens and licensed establishments, who are doing the best they can to play by established rules.

Stay alert and be on the look out for those bad people, concentrate your activities and do more investigative work going after anyone and everyone braking our laws, or those operating illegally by including confiscating their vehicles and equipment.
