As always Attorneys Rhett Bullard and Karen Hatton and also Dennis Price.
I don’t speak if I do not have the research to do so; that is my legal training. I was right and you all were wrong. Fuel Tax Funds are only for Transportation as is defined in the statutes.
I know you all think that you are thinking logically but remember FDOT is another agency of the State. Any Agency of the State is not restricted to how it spends its money; however, the Statute is restrictive as to what Counties and Municipalities may use their money for. Randy Ogborn when coming to the meeting said “I know” when I said,”you know that the Town isn’t spending the restricted money on transportation”.
