PC Board letter to State Legislature re “home rule” pending bills
As you may be aware, there are several bills in the State Legislature that would preempt County home rule ability to act in the best interest of the local residents. St Lucie County Commissioners recently enacted a Resolution (21-026) urging members of the Legislature to oppose these bills. In support of this Resolution, the PC Board sent a letter to the Legislature (copy attached to this post).
We encourage interested Associations and individuals to also forward similar letters to Tallahassee to help ensure that state standardization of regulation does not supersede controls based on local needs. (click here to view letter)
Reminder - Beach Funding Letter to SLC
As Harvey Alligood, B&D Committee Chair, explained at the meeting this week, a mailing went out on Wednesday asking Associations and individual members to send letters to the Commissioners in support of County-wide funding for the Federal Beach Project. Currently the State and Federal governments provide 2/3 of the project funding. The remaining amount, “local share”, will be funded by the County and local owners. To date the County has not indicated that there will be any “County-wide” funding provided and will rely only on the SHI MSTU, with the local property owners paying the total “local share” portion. We need to voice our view to the SLC Commissioners, that county-wide funding is warranted. If you have not already done so, please ensure that your letter is sent to the County by the end of March.
