Now in Lee County if the guess that the lost revenue would be $10 million that will just be added to the $30 to $36 million the county could not cut last year boosting the total to probably close to $50 million which was the amount they started with the year before and then made the $36 million dollar purchase of 20/20 conservation land bumping the total. Best part is they collected $577 million with the 20/20 program from Cape Coral and to date have not used the money to by even 1 square foot. If we have 24 to 27% of the county population we want some thing to show for our 20/20 land tax. We have spent over a billion dollars on water/sewer and yet to see where county offset any of issued bonds!
