It was recently brought to my attention that North Miami Beach Councilman Frantz Pierre somehow managed to close off the alley next to his home by having a concrete barrier plopped down in the middle of the road. The purpose of the barrier is to stop any vehicular traffic from accessing the passageway. Like garbage trucks, for example. Hmmmm…. How’d he do that?
Once upon a time Frantz was on good terms with the former fired City Manager Kelvin Baker. Of course, that was before Frantz moved to fire Baker for not hiring his friends to high city positions. Apparently, there was a time that all Mr. Pee-Air would have to do was simply snap his fingers and his will would be done. Yeah, I know. If that image alone doesn’t make you ROFL, nothing will.
During those heady days of false power, Frantz must have told Mr. Baker that he wanted his alley closed off because there was too much traffic driving through the alley along the east side of his house. Lo and behold, a concrete barrier magically appeared, replete with a reflective plate attached to it so any car or truck daring to mosey down His Highness’ alley wouldn’t slam into it.
Here is an aerial photograph of Frantz’ property taken from Google Maps. The little red balloon marked “A” is Pee-Air’s house. To the left of that property is the alley, where you can clearly see the barrier that stops any vehicular traffic from accessing the alley. (You can click on the photo to get a bigger picture.)
Here is a street level photograph of the barrier shot from the south side of the alley. The property surrounded by the wooden fence on the left belongs to Frantz.
I’m not sure if this is a violation of the North Miami Beach Code or the Miami-Dade County Code, or both. But, it’s obviously a blatant violation of some Code or another. One cannot simply close off a public right-of-way on a whim! Apparently, North Miami Beach’s own Baby Doc Pierre thinks he’s above the law.
Contrary to Frantz Pierre’s overblown image of himself and his position as an elected official, North Miami Beach is not his own personal fiefdom where he can do as he pleases. If the residents of North Miami Beach all have to comply with our Code ordinances, then he has to comply like the rest of us.
Hey, Frantzie baby. We are so on to you and the sneaky little games you’ve been playing since you conned your way onto that dais back in 2007. As your “house of cards” finally starts to topple down (and believe me, it’s happening as we speak), I will be there to document each and every falling card.
And, yeah. You can bet I’ll be ROFLMFAO!
