Lake County, FL Commissioner Leslie Campione just sent out her monthly newsletter which we inserted below. It focuses on the upcoming Sept. 9th 5pm meeting of the County Board where they may vote in the FIRST of TWO required public hearings to INCREASE the millage rate by 11% or more. The planned millage rate hike was 18% but that was reduced last week at a four hour Board meeting to 11%.
We agree with Leslie, who says that taxes do NOT need to be raised to cover needed spending, including salary increases for employees, so follow her recommendations below.
In addition to attending the Sept. 9th Board meeting at 5pm (different time than the normal Board meeting at 9am) , go to THIS Lake County Page and click each Board members name and email and phone them with your comments.
