Anderson: Commission Will Only Discuss Gas Tax Hike Tonight

PALM BAY, Florida -- Brevard County Commissioner Andy Anderson posted on Facebook a statement claiming that erroneous emails and other media are circulating that state the vote for the 6 cent gas tax hike is tonight:

"Recently, erroneous emails and other media has been distributed that indicated that the Board of County Commissioners was voting tonight to raise taxes and fees to fund road maintenance. This is absolutely false. Tonight - the Commission will be presented a report from a citizens advisory board. The Board of County Commissioners will take NO action at this meeting to approve or deny any recommendation. We will only discuss the work product and recommendations. Any further action would require a lengthy legislative process and must be legally advertised for full public hearings. Regardless, I am not in favor of raising any additional taxes or fees.

As I always advise: beware of half-truth and innuendo that is disseminated for political purposes 

If you need additional information - feel free to contact our office at (321) 253-6611 and someone would be happy to schedule a time for me to discuss in detail."
