Fire Department withdraws proposal for sales tax increase

GREAT NEWS !
We are pleased to announce: After our group, and many other local community groups put forth a strong protest at Tuesday's BCC meeting, the Fire Department has withdrawn it's proposal for a one cent sales tax increase. Be encouraged, if we stand together as a community, we will make a difference!  
And if the small wins keep happening, then the big ones will follow!

Two more dates to watch: June 16 at 9:30am and June 28 at 5pm
 
 
ISSUE:   The County Administrator has told commissioners they should raise the property tax rate 13% to offset falling property values and their budget gap.
 
Attend the budget workshop Wednesday June 16 at 9:30 at the county governmental center to protest this lousy idea -
 
ISSUE: City of WPB Fire Services Assessment of $100 per dwelling unit, in addition to what is on your property tax bill - because apparently, the Mayor can't add. 
 
PUBLIC HEARING JUNE 28 AT 5PM AT THE 160 MILLION DOLLAR CITY HALL ON CLEMATIS.
 
This may be coming to other municipalities that do not know how to budget. You help us in WPB, we will help you in your town. 
 
We fought the sales tax and won! 
We can win this too, but we have to show up.   
 
Many thanks to all who have worked so hard....
