the tax

Vote yes for less and you may
get more.
Sound confusing? It is, but
that's the picture painted by
local opponents to the water
management amendment on
the March 9 ballot.
Their message is clear: a
defeat of the amendment would
put the Florida Legislature on
notice that other, more com-
prehensive, changes are desired.
The amendment would
authorize and limit local taxes

for water management purposes
to "hot more than one mill." The
current limit is set at 1.3 mills.
The amendment's supporters
say the intent is clear- to reduce
the maximum millage for water
management purposes.
Opponents, however say the
amendment could result in a
maximum of two mills of tax be-
ing levied. Furthermore, they
say, the legislature's silence on
its intent for the amendment is
also reason for concern.
The local water management
district, the Southwest Florida
Water Management District, op-
ponents point out, is actually
made up of two types of taxing
bodies, the district board and the
basin board.
The amendment could,
therefore, result in a maximum
of one mill tax being levied by
each management group, mean-
ing a total possible millage coun-
tywide of two mills, according to
