Press release from Point Lookout Property Owners:
“Let’s Chill Out For The Summer”
Before we do… a heartfelt thank you to the community for uniting in a common goal. The bond vote is a testament of a community united for the common good. A message of a community
being proactive rather than reactive. Point Lookout voters soundly rejected the Fire Commissioner’s $7 million bond issue. A margin of 85% of the valid Pt. Lookout voters (508) voted “no” and 15 % voted “yes” .
As we all enjoy our beautiful beach and our unique community,
let’s reflect on our future tasks for the Fall:
The bond vote was not a victory or a loss. It showed the community needs to take initiative on its own so that we are not in a position where tax issues are dictated to us, but rather the community formulates a “master” plan that elected officials need to review before spending tax payer money. It is a real time message that average community residents are sending to their organizations and all special district managers: be they the Fire District, School District, Water District or others. “We want to have our voices heard and respected in all special tax district planning that affects our quality of life and pocket”
We encourage all property owner taxpayers and residents to join the Point Lookout Civic Association, (PLCA) should be your voice! (Bring its membership back to the previous year’s 400 plus member level from its present 200.) As appropriate, join the other local organizations to be part of the continuing dialogue with taxing entities.
For the community, have a great summer.
