The request came from Owen last spring that the Hillsborough county libraries look into and report back how we can protect kids. The director said he would not change content at the libraries. At his reply back to Owen at the regular bocc meeting he misrepresented public input which was virtually zero. He presented purchasing a new computer system capable of quickly accessing info of content withdrawal and parent notification. It was voted on unanimously by the board. The statement at the outset was parents of kids under 16 could now opt in to instant notification of books their kids took out. Clearly this limits kids from looking into topics they dont want their parents questioning them about at the dinner table. Now apparently certain books are being deemed off limits all together. Remember....Kemp Meyers and Cohen voted for this overreach and who knows what other restrictions the board will require of the county library

I believe the riverside award was to say look over here, while with the other hand in A-40 they gave 100 k to an exclusively Christian recovery place. Separation of church and state! Especially when cepeda said she couldn't support the Hindu proclamation because it had the word Hindu in it and Hindu is a religion.!!! Like wth. Seriously wth?. Also the remaining meeting was a attack after attack on non profits and affordable housing.. with the promise they were bringing the axe to the budget this year.... meanwhile you are hoarding 2.3 billion dollars fir a triple A rating and buying cow farms in cow country. Sickening bocc . Useless, owen says people showing up and e mails is not the will of the people!!! How absurd. πŸ€” Monday Gwen Meyers said homeless people choose to live that way. If you ask them they say they make money out here!!!! How absurd. πŸ€” Sickening bocc.

So Hagan has voted on agenda items keeping him in office for 22 years. Now wants 4 more. Tallahassee gop disagree.......

A bill that would enact term limits for county commissioners is moving forward to the next House committee stop after passing through the Ethics, Elections & Open Government Subcommittee by a vote of 9-6 on Wednesday.

Apparently also known for an agreement about the confederate statue. A woman came to the bocc and verbally attacked, calling by name and waving her arm around a commissioner. Months back the room erupted into cheers for the president of the young Republicans mocking of non profits and the word equity.. in niether case was order restored. The chair is useless and wants a total of 26 years in office , for now. Where does this stop.
Fir now it is precedent to applaud ones cause at any volume and...... name ,point, and verbally abuse commissioners!!!!! Wtf wt holy f.

Today we remember architect, public servant, and former Hillsborough County Commissioner Joe Chillura.

He is known for his pivotal role in the creation of the Community Investment Tax (CIT), which helped fund numerous critical infrastructure, public safety, and community projects since its creation in 1996, along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stadium. His 30-year career in public service helped shape the community's landscape, and his architectural legacy includes designing Tampa International Airport and the United States Postal Service buildings.

The Joe Chillura Courthouse Square in Downtown Tampa is a tribute to his impactful contributions to our community.

So... back in the beginning of the summer the president of the young Republicans came to the BOCC AND MOCKED NON PROFITS AND THE WORD EQUITY. YESTERDAY THE CONFEDERATE MONUMENT Lady screamed Pat Kemps name pointed her finger at her. Announced she was naming names. HAGAN said no but as the arm waving and and verbal attacks grew louder ......did absolutely nothing. At the young Republican speech the room erupted into cheers..... with absolutely nothing, not a word said. So it is the policy of the BOCC to accept attacks against Democrats and to uphold loud outbursts of applause for the gop.....got it!!! HaGaN is useless

At least the crap Hillsborough County, Florida Government made this meeting virtual. Way too many meetings not in the building, not virtual, not recorded....only transcripts if you can find them. Despite a recent agenda item of 9 million for communication. POS county board.

Not one commissioner bothered to show up. On Monday morning Gwen Meyers said if you talk to them they choose to live outside they make more money!!!!!! Clearly delusional.

Owen saying people at the Hillsborough County board of commissioners meeting do not represent public opinion they are just activists. This on the topic of non profits... particularly today the University area CDC

Are you running a waste water pipeline along 275 down to the port ????

Due to problems at the Northwest Regional Water Reclamation Facility, reclaimed water is temporarily not available for Northwest Hillsborough County.

This does not affect drinking water, it only affects irrigation systems in the area as they will not work. We are working to fix the issue and hope to have an update by Wednesday, Jan. 31

I don't own the lot so no county credit. No anonymous reporting agency to protect a person from eviction if they complain. Hillsborough bocc can kiss my .....
