Citizens protest sales tax, longer terms
Sign wavers urged the public to vote against the proposed county sales tax and four-year terms for Ormond Beach City Commissioners on the west end of the Granada Bridge on April 17.
The group leader, Amy Demeo, said local governments should stop providing large companies with millions of dollars in incentives instead of increasing the sales tax. For City Commission terms, she said two years are long enough.
The organizer, Ormond Beach Action Group, plans to have a sign-waving event for the next three weeks at the same location at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
Ormond Beach Action Group, formed a couple of years ago, meets the second Thursday of each month at Ormond Beach Regional Library.
