Let’s Incorporate Now Coalition (LINC), which has been studying cityhood and educating county residents on this subject since 1997, recommends that voters approve the county charter amendment on annexation and incorporation for the following reasons:
Allows voters to have the right to choose their own destiny and control the future development of their communities.
Assures that areas between adjacent communities do not get left out of the incorporation process.
Allows the County Commission to focus its efforts on countywide issues such as the airport, seaport, transit, water and sewer and other issues affecting all county residents.
Vote Yes on county Charter Amendment 4 on Nov. 6.
