flying-moneyNov. 23, 2013--According to recent reports, Martin County needs to invest approximately $200,000,000 in infrastructure over the next few years.  Many of these projects should have been completed earlier, however, due to decreased tax revenues over the past 5 years, many projects have been deferred or repaired (short term).  The consequences of not adequately maintaining our infrastructure can be costly.  Earlier this year two culverts failed unexpectedly and cost the county in excess of $840,000.

withamNovember 8, 2013-- Once again we visit the proposed Customs Facility at Witham Field.  Last month the Martin County Taxpayers Association weighed in on the subject (Visit mctaxpayers.org and click on MCTA articles).  The county has been studying the idea of a customs facility since the Martin County Commission approved the updated Airport Business Plan in Sept. 2010, which included a recommendation for a Customs Facility. 

withamOctober 12, 2013--The proposed Customs and Border Patrol facility for Witham Field has raised some controversy over the cost to build, staff and maintain the facility. Some argue that only a small percentage of the County population will use the facility and those would primarily be wealthier residents who can afford to pay their own way. Based on these contentions, the MCTA has decided to conduct its own review.

dollarsSeptember 21, 2013--As we enter the heart of our hurricane season complaints about property insurance are once again in the news.  Most of the negative comments concentrate on the Governor’s efforts to limit Florida's liability inherent in the State “owned” Citizens Property Insurance Corp.

stLucieSeptember 7, 2013--Like the rest of Martin County, and especially those along the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Lucie Estuary, the Martin County Taxpayers Association is frustrated over the emergency discharges into our rivers.  We fully understand the complexities and limitations of the problem, and accept the fact that no one, or collective group of agencies, wants to damage our environment and all are more than just concerned about the potential for long term damage to our economy.
