to discuss our opposition to the
The City of Fort Lauderdale hosted a meeting on June 12th and approximately 150+ homeowners expressed their opposition about Proposed Canal Dredging Assessment Tax. The City is considering a perpetual, annual assessment tax for properties along the City-owned canals to fund dredging costs. The annual assessment tax would be approximately $340 for a home on 85 feet of waterfrontage.
The consensus of the neighbors who heard the presentation at the City Presentation meeting was:
Dredge the canals on an “As needed” Basis
Funds should be taken from the City General Fund not a perpetual annual assessment tax
Do not postpone the vote on this tax -reject it now.
Please watch the video at http://fortlauderdale.legistar.com City Commission Conference meeting on April 19th and listen to the positive reactions to this tax proposal by your Commissioners (fast forward to 2:20) for the Preliminary Canal Dredging Rate Study Presentation.
Please call or email your Commissioner today and voice your opposition to the proposed new tax.
