An event hosted by Vice Mayor Bolton today was a massive success. The event, “Meet Marlon In The Park,” featured representatives from the Broward County Property Appraisers Office and Broward County Schools, providing valuable information to the community.
Residents spoke to their district representative on various topics related to public safety, beautification, taxes, and the Mainlands 1-5 street repaving project.
In a recently completed citywide roadway condition survey, Mainlands Sections 1-5 were identified as the community most in need of milling and resurfacing. The project, championed by Commissioner Marlon Bolton, will invest approximately $2,569,495.61 to improve the roads in the community.
“Residents need to know what is going on in their community and how we are spending their tax dollars, so outreach events like these are needed,” Bolton told Tamarac Post.
Residents also seemed very interested in the BCPA’s “Owner Alert Program,” and many signed up for it. Owner Alert is a FREE service designed to help residents protect their property from scams or fraud by notifying them if a document is received by the Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office changing the ownership of their property.
“Marty Kiar is doing a good job, programs like these show that he has the heart to protect people and their property,” Bolton said.
Residents mostly came out between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and thanked Commissioner Bolton for his hard work. The event ended around 2 p.m. with live music and food.
