Yes, we're not very good at keeping within time limits but here goes;
Yes, the Central Florida Metro-Plan wants more of your money and local leaders will decide if YOU should pay for THEIR failing road obligations. Here's some of the info compliments of WFTV News;
Paying to drive may one day become a reality in central Florida.
MetroPlan Orlando board members are considering a new pay-per-mile tax system.
It’s a controversial proposal that’s getting attention from lawmakers.
Instead of being taxed at the gas pump, drivers would pay a mileage fee.
Leaders said the extra revenue will go toward road improvements because the current gas tax may not support road improvements as more drivers choose electric and hybrid cars.
Osceola County – Today, Osceola County Sheriff's detectives arrested Reynaldo Cruz-Sanabria (DOB 11/6/69) and charged him with 10 counts of Promoting Photo/Movie Sexual Performance of a Child.
Too much going on so we're right into it today.
On Monday, 1/12/2015 the BOCC agreed to send Colt a letter of default for their failure to fulfill their part of an agreement between Colt and the BOCC. We understand that they MAY have been late with their agreed rental fees, $1.00 per year! The Colt project, also laughingly referred to as Frank's folly, was dreamed up a couple years ago as long as the county repaired the former Senior Citizen building costing taxpayers little more than one million dollars, not counting the loss for ad fees a certain construction company took advantage of for nearly a year until being told to take their signs down. Now, with the letter going to Colt, and the waiting for legal processes to happen, the county may actually get back their own building by the end of this year! Progress!
