Posted on 09 June 2011 by LeslieM

2 ½ hours later, after at least 33 residents spoke — mostly against, Deerfield Beach city commission approved a utility tax on second and final reading with a 3-1 vote. The ordinance passed on June 7 is effective immediately. The actual tax is slated to begin Oct. 1, 2011.

During the public hearing, everyone from a Publix manager to a State Representative to a single mom of four children had something to say. Read Thursday’s paper for full details on residents’ concerns.
