Marco Island Property Owners (MIPO) will conduct its last public forum for the season with two guest speakers on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 3 PM in City Council Chambers located at 51 Bald Eagle Drive.
Florida House Representative Kathleen Passidomo will discuss two issues of great importance to the health and safety of Marco Island residents:
Cleaning up of Florida’s polluted water, a topic that has been the subject of considerable finger pointing and blame passed amongst state, federal, and conservation agencies and the U.S. Sugar Company.
Marco Island would like to obtain a Florida Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, (COPCN), in order to provide its own ambulance and advanced life support service to the community. Representative Passidomo will update us on the status of FL House Bill 517 and how it relates to the COPCN for incorporated municipalities, including Marco Island.
Following Representative Passidomo, Marco’s Floodplain Coordinator, Kelli Defedericis, will have a fifteen minute presentation on the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program, the Community Rating System and how it will affect you as a homeowner. (It is hard to believe that hurricane season begins in less than two months, isn’t it?)
As always, ample time will be allotted for audience members to present their questions or concerns to the guest speakers. All members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend this important meeting. As an advocate for property owners, MIPO strives to provide communication to get the word out on issues affecting the community. www.MarcoIslandPropertyOwners.com.
