Who's Sitting on a
Gold Mine?


August 25, 2014 -  Although property values have risen an average of more than 12% countywide, only The Town of Jupiter Inlet Colony is proposing to lower property taxes this year.  All other municipalities in Palm Beach County are keeping millage rates the same or raising their millage rate.  See the entire Palm Beach Post article by clicking HERE.

Florida Constitutional Amendment Petition


Placed on the ballot, this amendment will allow voters in November 2014 to determine if they want 33% of excise taxes ALREADY COLLECTED on documents to support the Land Acquisition Trust Fund.  Increased revenue would allow the fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands, thus improving water quality in the state.  This is an already existing tax and passage of this will NOT raise our taxes.  Improvements to such areas as the St. Lucie Estuary, Lake Okeechobee and Everglades will move forward more quickly.  The water quality of the Jupiter Inlet and inland waterway will be directly and positively affected by passage of this amendment.

The legislature pledged to fully fund this trust fund about 10 years ago and gave a substantial portion of the named excise taxes to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund.  Subsequently they have marked increasing shares of the collected excise taxes to general obligations, thus decreasing monies available to improve water quality in the state.  This amendment will restore the original intent of the legislature.
