Palm Coast, Florida – March 1, 2009 – Rumor: Two readers contacted me today to tell me that Ginn-LA (real estate developer Bobby Ginn and financial partner Lubert Adler) has decided to outsource its security division. One security employee at Reunion Resort was reportedly earning $11/hr. That employee can apply for a position with the new company at $9/hr. Wages and benefit costs are said to be the motive behind the move.
Rumors abound of Linger Longer visiting both Hammock Beach and Reunion; for purchase or for management? One source claims that Linger Longer passed on the opportunity to buy Reunion.
Another person says that the rental management department will be shut down and guest services restructured. I haven't been able to confirm this story, but it makes sense on at least one level. I've seen information that leads me to believe that there may have been some improprieties in the rental management program at the Hammock Beach Resort where some rental units received more frequent bookings at the expense of other units in the rental program.
