70 k for a study, 7 million for a seaplane base, 50k for a water taxi to nowhere. Great moves.
My parents live in Tavares and cannot afford more and more taxes...which these morons hide in the way of increased water rates, etc.
The city should save money and turn the fire service over to the county. A 1.8 million dollar department that does nothing but duplicate the amublance service is an albatross.

You've got to be kidding! A $70,000 study to see what amount the fee should be? I'll answer that for free. Consolidate fire services with Lake County. Our Tavares dept. is mostly ineffective at saving anything that catches on fire on the very few occassions they are called on to do so. The ambulance company arrives before the fire department on most every call....and provides a higher level of service. A definite duplication of services. The next thing these yo-yo's will come up with is an increase in tax millage rate and try to say it's a tax rollback. Ouit wasting my tax money !

All those studies are, the SAME as what another city had,just change the cover page. All these cities have been paying for these studies, usually from the same company, and it's all basically the same conclusion. YOU DO NOT vote to proceed with such a study, unless you know for sure that you will. So thats the first sign that they will implement such a fee.
Lets start with cutting some of these overpaid positions and duplication of services instead of resorting to "fees' which is nothing but a back-door tax.
