first_imgMayor Jay Gillian, speaking at a dredging meeting on Dec. 10, believes a lobbying firm can help the city with its regulatory requirements. Dear Friends,Yesterday morning, I held a town hall meeting about Ocean City’s 2017 dredging program. ACT Engineers made a presentation about an alternative technology that could possibly be used to jump-start our dredging program for mid-island lagoons.I’d like to thank all who attended the meeting and let everybody know that more information will come as we take into consideration all the feedback we received.I know not everybody was able to attend the meeting, so I’m providing links here to the presentation made by ACT Engineers and to video of the entire meeting.

‘This is a national crisis’

first_imgWhen NCUA eventually sells its portfolio of medallion loans, will the medallion crisis facing credit unions be over?Sources are split on that answer, with one expert saying the worst has passed but some CUs will still experience issues—even with performing medallion loans—in having to write down the value of that collateral.Another analyst, however, asserts the industry faces a big problem.As CUToday.info has reported, NCUA is looking to sell its portfolio of more than 3,500 medallion loans, including some from Chicago, valued at an estimated $1.5 billion. NCUA came to own the medallions following the liquidation of a half-dozen taxi medallion-lending credit unions that failed at a cost of nearly three-quarters-of-a-billion-dollars to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.

Poll shows fans back Hammers move

first_img The survey showed that 51% of those questioned believed the move would provide West Ham with the resources to improve the squad and build the club. The other reasons given for supporting the move included growing the club’s supporter base and the belief the Olympic Stadium would provide an improved fan experience. Press Association Only 5% of the 11,858 supporters questioned were against West Ham leaving Upton Park under any circumstances while 10% said they would consider backing the move but they required more information. Those supporters have been offered the chance to take part in on-going consultation sessions throughout this summer. West Ham plan to move into the Olympic Stadium, with a post-conversion capacity of 54,000, for the start of the 2016/17 season. The club’s vice-chairman Karren Brady said: “I am delighted that the SMG YouGov independent poll shows that such an overwhelming majority of our fans are in favour of our plans to move to the Olympic Stadium. “I would like to thank each and every supporter that took the time to have their say on what is an historic and monumental decision for the club. We must now engage further with the fans who’ve requested more information but it is fantastic to know that the consensus among our supporters is that they are behind the move.” MG YouGov said the poll was six times larger than typical surveys of 2000 people used for robust research analysis, therefore greatly reducing the margin for error. The results have been published on West Ham’s official website whufc.com. center_img West Ham’s plan to move into the Olympic Stadium has the backing of 85% of the club’s supporters, according to a comprehensive poll conducted by SMG YouGov.last_img read more
