Ranch residents feeling better about security

Residents of  the Edgewater and Country Club villages, which comprise Community Development District 2, had plenty to say Thursday about the district’s proposed $2.3 million budget for fiscal 2012.

Almost all of it focused on whether $15,600, which had originally been earmarked for a pilot tree project, should instead be put into a fund to study security concerns.

Those concerns stemmed from a pair of armed home invasions in gated Edgewater village. One of those occurred July 17 on Waters Edge Way, and the other on July 26 on Misty Morning Court.

Apparently those concerns began to ebb after the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a suspect on July 28.

Thursday, the majority of residents who spoke to district supervisors during a public hearing on the budget, asked that the $15,600 not be put aside for a security study.
