Beware! Incorporation M.A.C. (Municipal Advisory Committee) is not equally represented. According to the Herald in the Nov. 19 article the Highland Lake / Sky Lake Association has chosen a different route to becoming a city than a petition drive. (They probably know they are unable to get the votes, for most people in the area are opposed to incorporation. We know this from our records from the past incorporation attempt). The article goes on to say that the M.A.C. is being reconvened (with the members from the original M.A.C.) which can serve as an alternative to a petition. Of course, we know that the majority of its members come from the Highland Lakes area. The high density condominium area which holds the majority voting block is not represented at all and neither is Ojus or the very small West Dixie commercial area. Is this a future “taxation without representation, which equals tyranny” situation looming?
Shouldn’t we find out who this wannabe mayor, council, and bureaucrats are? After all, they are going to be dealing with our property, tax money, and lifestyle in their proposed vision of this new city, for one thing these members are appointed by our local politician Commissioner Sally Heyman. Food for your thoughts here. Are they doing this for altruistic reasons?
Please get involved and look at Sunday Neighbors for future meetings or call Miami-Dade at 305-3751543. Please say no to incorporation and its associated bureaucratic expenses!
