Pinellas County Board of County Commisioners
United States of America

Pinellas County has provided one of the most successful Artificial Reef Programs in the state of Florida. This program has existed since the 1970s, to provide a service to the fishing and boating community.

Due to the recent cuts in property taxes, Pinellas County has proposed eliminating its Artificial Reef program in order to save around $600,000 for the 07/08 budget.

This cut is unnecessary because the funding for this program comes from the Solid Waste facility budget.

This funding is part of an enterprise fund which is not effected by the tax cuts and cannot be used to supplement the general fund.

We, the undersigned, call on the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners to keep the Artificial Reef Program.
