The City of Vero Beach has recently lowered their electric utility rates, effective October 15, 2016. With FPL signaling a significant increase in their electric utility rates over the next three years, Indian River Shores Vero Beach electric utility users, of which I am one, should cease their efforts to get FPL electric. Frankly folks, it just isn’t going to happen – The Public Service Commission has exclusive and superior rights in territorial agreements, which cannot be easily modified or changed – The Supreme Court of Florida has already handed down a decision on this issue.
One more important thing!! Please vote note “no” on Amendment 2 which would legalize so- called, “medical marijuana.” I’ve read Amendment 2, and it will lead to “pot shops” in Indian River County should it pass. I KID YOU NOT! THERE ARE THOSE WHO LIVE HERE WHO ARE JUST WAITING FOR THIS AMENDMENT TO PASS, SO THEY CAN OPEN UP SHOP AND PROFIT BY IT! It is heart-breaking to witness this. –
PLEASE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO VOTE “NO.”
