LOCAL GOVERNMENT BUDGETS ARE ALWAYS A VERY DRY ISSUE, YET NOTHING IMPACTS US GREATER HERE IN ALACHUA COUNTY THAN THE BUDGET PROCESS WHICH MOST DRAMATICALLY AFFECTS THE PROPERTY OWNERS WHO PAY PROPERTY TAXES.  WEDNESDAY AT 8 PM WE ARE DELIIGHTED TO HAVE OUR NEWEST COMMISSIONER, KEN CORNELL, AS OUR GUEST TO DISCUSS THE SOON-TO-BE FINALIZED PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS, WHAT THEY WILL BE USED FOR AND CONCERNS AND ISSUES THAT REMAIN AS MAJOR CHALLENGES. PARTICULAR EMPHASIS WILL BE PLACED ON INFRASTRUCTURE (PARTICULAR ROADS) AND THE IMPACT THAT MAJOR GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT WILL HAVE ON ALACHUA COUNTY.  WILL THAT GROWTH PAY FOR ITSELF OR WILL THE IMPACT BE GREATEST ON TAXPAYERS WHO ALREADY FEEL THEY ARE OVERTAXED AND WHAT IS THE SHARE THAT WILL BE COVERED BY THE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS THEMSELVES? AND HOW WILL THOSE FACTORS CHANGE OUR QUALITY OF LIFE?

KEN IS WELL PREPARED FOR HIS POSITION, HOLDING A MASTERS DEGREE IN ACCOUNTING AND AS A CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT.  HE IS CURRENTLY A REAL ESTATE BROKER-ASSOCIATE AND SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT WITH BOSSHARDT REALTY.  WE WELCOME HIS EXPERTISE TO THE SHOW.

I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AND EVEN IF YOU DON'T RESIDE IN ALACHUA COUNTY THE DISCUSSION WILL INFORM YOU OF THE TYPE OF ISSUES YOUR COMMUNITY IS LIKELY TO BE FACING AS WELL.  BE INFORMED, AFTER ALL, IF YOU DON'T STAY ON TOP OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOU AND GET INVOLVED IT IS VERY HARD TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE OUTCOME WHEN IT ARRIVES.
