The Economic Development Council and The Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce are doing their best to attract new business and their employees to our city. They cannot accomplish this goal in good conscious, when our infrastructure is antiquated. Now is the time to act, continued band-aids on the system is not sustainable. I do not endorse additional taxes or fees, but agree with the borrowing of money when it is the most advantageous to do so and understand that refinancing when financially beneficial to the city and its citizens is smart money management. Repairing the city's storm system, roads and solving beach erosion are vital to the growth of Deerfield Beach and must be done as economically responsible as possible.
