In addition to choosing between four candidates seeking two seats on the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council, voters in Loxahatchee Groves will also decide three referendum questions during the Tuesday, March 10 town election.
The first asks if election provisions should be moved from the town charter to a town ordinance, in case of unforeseen circumstances that require amending them, without the need to go to a referendum. The election provisions relate to electors, nonpartisan elections, election dates, runoff elections, the canvassing board, special elections and general elections.
The second question is a non-binding poll intended to provide feedback to the council on determining whether or not to pave roadways within the town. The town’s roads are mainly dirt roads, but recently, several roads have been paved. Members of the council may rely on the opinion poll in reviewing future paving policy.
The third question is another non-binding opinion poll intended to provide feedback to the council asking whether or not voters would be willing to pay for road paving projects. No taxes, assessments or fees will be levied as a result of the referendum, however council members might rely on the opinion poll in reviewing future policies for funding the paving projects of public roads within the town.
