CORRECTION.

Only 37,494 of the entire population, 180,000, of Cape Coral VOTED FOR THE BOND ISSUE.

Cape Coral voters approved a $60 million expansion of the city’s parks and recreation amenities. The measure passed with 54 percent of the vote. The “yes” votes tallied 37,494 and the “no” votes totaled 32,475 (only 46 percent of those who voted). There were only 69,969 total votes cast. Only 37,494 of the entire population, 250,000, of Cape Coral VOTED FOR THE BOND ISSUE. Only 54% of the total 30% who voted at all, determined that the city will dish out $60K for PARKS. The MINORITY WINS and THE CITY LOSES. The City Council FAILED in their responsibilities to be FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE in continuing the validity of this referendum vote.The CITY CHARTER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED TO make it mandatory that " when less than 75% of the eligible voters fail to vote on an expenditure referendum then the TOTAL REFERENDUM SHOULD FAIL." This would stop small groups from encumbering non-participating voters with usurping tax charges passed by minority coalitions.

I'll be rather surprised if the majority of that money is waiting for a deal to settle on the old golf course. Once the city secures that, look for most of the bond to be spent on it.
