There was also a discussion of the gas tax and re-allocating how it will be spent. I will follow up with the Commissioners to find out what that was all about – there wasn’t any real details in the meeting and it will be referred to one of their workshops.
This just in – as a result of the meeting last night, we are now aware there may be an effort to increase Okaloosa County gas tax by 5 cents. This is a far more complex subject than I had imagined. I had a commissioner call me and discuss the issue – I will get in touch with the right person in the county office and get more details. This will certainly be a talking point as these commissioners begin attending and speaking at our meetings.
