Leon County Commissioner Bill Proctor and Tallahassee City Commissioner Jeremy Matlow are hosting a virtual town hall on the proposed Children’s Services Council (CSC) tomorrow, Sept. 10. The CSC, which has been controversial, is on the ballot this November.
According to a press release, “The proposal is estimated to levy approximately $96 million in property taxes over a 12-year period to fund a Council that would administer the proceeds to nonprofit agencies.”
Attorney Jon Moyle and lobbyist Barney Bishop have confirmed that they will be participating in the panel conversation. Moyle is a supporter of the CSC, and he serves as chairman of “Our Kids First,” a political committee focused on children’s issues.
Bishop, on the other hand, serves as chairman of Citizens for Responsible Spending and has voiced concerns over the CSC’s spending plan.
Following the panel discussion, the town hall will include the opportunity for the public to ask questions about the CSC.
The town hall will take place tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. The event will also be live-streamed on Facebook.
