After the proliferation of sewage spills around Pinellas County a task force was formed by the Pinellas County Commission.
They have met once in October and on Monday January 31 possible solutions are to be presented at this second meeting.
This is of critical importance to the residents of Pinellas and we need to follow closely what is being offered as it impacts our personal property, health, and local economy.
For nearly 30 years we have paid a local option sales tax Penny for Pinellas which was to be earmarked for infrastructure. Maintenance of Sewage and Stormwater systems is as basic as it gets when it comes to infrastructure.
Recently in a meeting of the County Commission discussing the next 10 year renewal of Penny for Pinellas which will be on the ballot November 2017, it was said that the largest category of expenditures for the penny over the nearly 30 years has been TRAILS.
So we cannot trust that these elected officials and their staffs will lead us out of this environmental disaster that will happen again next tropical storm with rain lasting few days.
Attend if you can.
