EPISODE DESCRIPTION

By Tyler Whitson.
Recorded: 2013-05-15.
Air date: 2013-05-27.

On Tuesday, May 7, the Sarasota County Commission voted 4 to 1 to extend a cut in impact fees indefinitely. This means that the previously planned restoration of full impact fees that was scheduled to go into effect February 1, 201,5 will no longer occur. Commissioner Nora Patterson, who cast the only “no” vote on the proposition, said that those impact fees are needed to build public roads.

For more information about why she chose to cast the sole “no” vote at last week’s County Commission Meeting, I’m spoke with Commissioner Patterson. She explained what impact fees are and how decisions to keep them at a low level may affect development planning and taxpayers in the future.
