Please take time to read the attached PDF. Our city barely avoided loosing $92,000 of CDBG funding that our tax dollars have paid to invest back in our community.
I ask that you take the time to take notice of this for two reasons.
Port Orange cannot afford to let money that should rightly be invested into our community go.
The reason we nearly lost this funding is the responsibility and would have been the fault of senior staff.
I my last letter to our council I sited the article in the Sunday paper about Ormond’s moves to redevelop US1. They have been very efficient at receiving grants and state funding for improvements where our departed staff failed.
Moving ahead as our city hires a new manager and staff we should think about what things we have been missing out on and make sure the people hired will help achieve better, than the last.
