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  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.
