Or Key West?
Suckers in my bedroom, or comes in my house, he's getting killed, plain and simple. I'm not going to hold a question and answer session as to what he's doing there. The "law" can do what it wants, but I ain't taking chances. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
They may have sided with the county. They may say it's legal. Doesn't mean it's right and doesn't mean they can make the county keep it. It will run out in time and if politicians have any sense they will see what support of it will do to their careers. It ended Mike Beaudreau's career and it will end others.
Actually they are wrong. When this "fee" went into effect, they are required to cover ALL drainage issues, not just in streets and easements. No one has challenged them yet is the issue.
Actually the storm water fee was a solution looking for a problem which even allowed Bannister and Kenerly the ability to say "I didn't raise taxes".
So the county government is using "fees" to circumvent the law that prohibits churches from being taxed? What happened to separation of church and state? Also, those big churches have their own storm water conveyance systems and retention ponds to keep any more water from leaving their property than would in the "before developed" condition. You think for one minute if they have a problem with their pipes or pond that the county is going to use some of that money the church paid in to fix it? Heck no!! They get to do that on their own--plus get screwed by the government.
Why don't they have the guts to roll these fees into annual taxes--they get the money and citizens can write the whole thing off. Win-win.
Again, let he who is without sin, cast the first stone....
Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone....
Another bit of Scripture. "A voice crying in the wilderness....." We will NEVER get back to the original intent of the Constitution, especially with all these politicians trying to play Santa Clause.
