I beg to differ

To the editor:

In an ad placed by Ken Cox, Commission-er Seat 2 of the Matlacha/Pine Island Fire Control District, the ad states that there hasn't been a millage rate increase in 14 years.

I pulled up my TRIM notice of 2007 and the millage rate for the MPIFCD was $2.50. The rate was increased 14 percent in 2009 to $2.85. Again in 2011 the rate was increased 5.3 percent to $3. Unless I am missing something those are ad valorem millage rate increases.

Now the District is proposing a 25 percent increase.
