Gretsas’s Condo His Long Term Home ?

     City Manager George Gretsas’s employment future should be decided at the upcoming City Commission meeting, this Tuesday night.

     Gretsas lives on the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach and has this beautiful view when he wakes – 
 
                                                 
                                                                         Fort Lauderdale beach at sunrise


     He’s trying to keep that view, and his job! As we’ve told you before, the conventional wisdom of him being retained as the City Manager stands at two votes for, two against, and one hanging in the balance. 

     Gretsas lives at the Points of America Condo that overlooks the inlet at Port Everglades. 

     Here are the stats on the property records that detail the value if his condo, and the taxes he pays:
