PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION / POR FAVOR FIRME ESTA PETICION

WE URGE THE KEY BISCAYNE VILLAGE COUNCIL TO TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS ON JULY 28, 2020:

  1. VOTE AGAINST AMENDING VILLAGE CHARTER TO EXCLUDE GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS FROM VILLAGE DEBT CAPACITY; AND
  2. VOTE AGAINST PROPOSED $100 MILLION GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND REFERENDUM

We, the people of Key Biscayne, respectfully demand that the Village Council VOTE AGAINST the proposed Ordinance to amend the Village Charter and Resolution to approve a $100 million general obligation bond on July 28, 2020.   We disapprove of the Village Council’s precipitous action to rush the $100 million general obligation bond referendum for voter approval on November 3, 2020, without formulating a specific, comprehensive resiliency action plan with identifiable objectives, funding and planning. WE DO NOT WANT THE VILLAGE CHARTER'S DEBT CAPACITY TO BE AMENDED TO EXCLUDE GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS.

We are seriously concerned by the reckless actions taken by the Village Council to bring forth such a financially burdensome initiative while the United States is in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic and struggling through one of the worst recessions in modern times. With unemployment rates surging, businesses closing, and workers being furloughed or laid off, to burden Key Biscayne taxpayers with the largest debt leverage in the Village’s history is FISCALLY IRRESPONSIBLE.  

If you do not VOTE AGAINST the proposed Ordinance and Resolution for the $100 million general obligation bond, we will not forget your vote on November 3, 2020.
