Previous Action



Staff requests permission to advertise a proposed ordinance for public hearing before the Board. 



              On June 6, 2017, the Board adopted Ordinance No. 17-008 extending the local option gas tax through December 31, 2019.  A copy of the adopted ordinance was sent to the State of Florida Department of Revenue.  The Department acknowledged receipt of the ordinance but requested that the County delete the reference in Section 42-192(b) of the St. Lucie County Code of Ordinances to "alternate methods of transportation” as that term is not included in the applicable statute. 

              Attached is a draft ordinance that, if adopted, would delete the reference to "alternate methods of transportation" in Section 42-192(b).

              Staff recommends the Board authorize the permission to advertise Ordinance 17-XXX for public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners.
