Resident urges Council to lower taxes

September 21, 2011
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

I've only been living on the Beach a few months, though I have visited here for years.

"Taxes are not being raised" appears to be Mayor Kiker and Manager Stewart's mantra, but it's claiming a falsehood. Residents and visitors pay for the 10 percent tax on electricity. We need a change in the Council.

The millage is up over 50% in the past four years. The Town isn't able to keep its business in order so it keeps trying to locate other sources of revenue to hide its mismanagement.

I say that enough is enough. Lower taxes!!!!!
