Transportation Penny Tax: Meeting & Updates
In November 2018, Broward County residents voted for the county tax to be increased by a penny penny in order to raise money to address the traffic congestion and transportation problems. Before that vote, in September of 2018, the County Commission voted to require that 30% of the funds be spent with local, small businesses.
An oversight committee was created in order to ensure that the money is spent on projects that will address local transportation issues. From our perspective, it is imperative for the oversight board to ensure that small businesses get the 30% of the spend that was promised.
