The Committee seeking repeal or referendum on the recently adopted Marco City Rental Ordinance received approval from the City attorney late Friday May 22, 2015.
What’s Next? What is the Petition All About?
The Committee will start circulating petitions this week for signature by registered Marco voters.
The petition seeks to compel Marco City Council to repeal the controversial Rental Ordinance 15-01 adopted then modified by City Council to include house and condominium owners who rent their property for less than a year. If Petition drive is successful and City Council does not repeal the Ordinance, then it must schedule a voter referendum and let the majority of registered voters decide.
Who is the Sponsor of the Petition? Why it matters.
The committee comes from a much larger group of concerned citizens. All strongly believe the Council majority poorly decided in adopting the Ordinance. It creates further extensive, burdensome and unnecessary government regulation contrary to common sense and in spite of existing ordinances which address the problem. Committee members and supporters all live here in houses or condominiums; some are in business, others are not. We all share a strong love of Marco Island, a desire to protect our freedoms and our individual property rights. .
