Letter: LGLA Supports Dependency

The Loxahatchee Groves Landowners’ Association members had a lengthy discussion regarding the Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District becoming dependent to the town. The discussion about the road maintenance was a part of the whole issue.

The LGLA members voted unanimously to support and encourage the district becoming dependent. The fact is that the town owns the roads and will be sure to put sufficient funding in the budget year starting October 1, 2018 to bring the roads up to a more useable standard by hiring a company the deals with our kind of road issues. You can also count on the extra money totaling about $130,000 being available that came from the sale of the road-grading equipment that the district will not spend during this budget year.

The LGLA members would rather see a budget that supports road improvement with the dependent district rather than support high salaries and benefits that would carry on with an independent district.

If you can’t attend the 7 p.m. meeting at 101 West D Road (LGWCD office) on Monday, June 25, you must reach out to someone to place your proxy vote for you. You can reach out to LGLA officers Marge Herzog, Virginia Standish, Ken Johnson, and Claus and Diane von Grote. Proxy forms can be mailed by June 22 to LGLA, P.O. Box 96, Loxahatchee, FL 33470.
