Last week: I just want to thank the City Commission of Fort Lauderdale for taking swift action to repair the most critical elements of their sewer system while reviewing a potential slowdown in development activity with caution. We need all hands on deck for this situation.
Looking ahead: Next week, the Florida Legislature begins its 60 day sprint that must only end with a balanced budget. In my industry, I’m seeing so many bills that have impacts, minor and major, without much conversation with our actual industry in most cases. I’ll be attending the annual State of the Taxpayer dinner put on by Florida TaxWatch. This annual event celebrates the beginning of session, but also puts a reminder in Tallahassee that regardless of the impacts to individual professions, Florida TaxWatch is looking out for the interests of every taxpayer in the State.
