Mayors Tell Lawmakers, Back Off

April 24th, 2008 by flanews

Mayors from around the state traveled to Tallahassee Thursday to tell lawmakers to back off. The League of Mayors addressed reporters in a crowed room at the Capitol. Mayors say there has always been a battle for control between city leaders and lawmakers. They say right now theyre losing the battle. Sunrise Mayor Steven Feren said proposed tax caps and budget cuts are the issues that are hurting every city in the state.

If we start letting people go, if theres anymore cuts that hurts the recession. If we stop building projects because we dont know whether or not we have the money to build them, then there are contractors and theyre employees who arent working, said Feren.

Mayors fear when Amendment One property tax breaks hit the general funds later this year, things will get worse.
