Pasco County Commissioners likely to slash new home impact fees over objections of Pasco School District Officials

On April 19th, Pasco County Commissioners are expected to approve a "temporary" reduction in impact fees assessed on new homes to promote more home building over the objections of school district officials. The fee generally is used to construct new schools, but according to school district officials the reduction will likely result in additional layoffs in the school district.  (Full Story)  Both Pasco County Commissioners who represent Wesley Chapel are supporting the reduction in new home impact fees.  If you would like to voice your opinion on the matter before the vote, e-mail your local County Commissioner--
