Now that our priorities have been determined, the County must work hard to ensure the members of the State Legislature understand our needs. Last week, County Manager, Taco Pope, and Assistant County Manager, Marshall Eyerman, visited Tallahassee to meet with House and Senate Budget staff, State Agencies, and the Governor’s office of Policy and Budget. Approximately 10 meetings took place. Overall, it was a very productive trip, however there is a lot of work left to be done.
The 2022 Legislative Session will officially convene on January 11, 2022. County Officials will likely have to return to the Capitol for additional meetings as the Legislative process continues. They will continue to fight for Nassau County to ensure that our needs are not forgotten. We wish them luck in their endeavors and look forward to sharing news about any funds that are appropriated for Nassau County in the Spring of 2022.
