Ocean City Businesses Question Irene Response

OCEAN CITY, Md. - As powerful Hurricane Irene spun toward Maryland in August, evacuations were ordered in Ocean City.
Well in advance of the storm, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan declared a local state of emergency, businesses were told to close, and all except emergency crews were ordered to leave.
But some people think things should have been done differently.
Ocean City's Hotel-Motel Restaurant Association has sent a letter to city council, outlining concerns it has about the town's storm response.

Who cares! What's done is done. I'd rather the council make decisions proactivly than risking lives.
If money was lost-too bad-it happens all the time and is a part of owning a business. If you don't like it then go and get a government job!
