Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield beach, Fl-In another overreaching attempt the City Commission and Mayor seem to be headed toward a vegetable garden ban, Many in town including “Deerfield Beach Politics” Facebook group are not happy with the cities HOA mentality. Private property owners do not take kindly to the government telling them where they may plant their gardens. The proposed BAN would limit where property owners could plant vegetable gardens eliminating the front and side of their yards.
From Dan Herz -Candidate for district one Commissioner-
SHAME, SHAME, SHAME COMMISSIONER TODD DROSKY!
Commissioner Todd Drosky’s attempt to outlaw vegetable gardens in the front yards of your Deerfield Beach homes was put on temporary hold last Tuesday night as the commission agreed to table his ordinance until the October 16th meeting. Since the city has been slooooow about putting up the video from this meeting I will provide a brief synopsis: Every citizen who spoke about the ordinance was AGAINST IT. It then was revealed that Commissioner Drosky brought this ordinance to appease Doug Kennedy, President of the Woodlands HOA in Deer Creek even though there was already an HOA regulation against the gardens. Commissioner Drosky’s lame excuse for bringing up this half-baked half thought out ordinance in the first place was (and I quote him) ” As an elected official It’s our responsibility & duty to listen to our constituents concerns”.
John Grassi-Administrator Deerfield Beach Politics-
NO MORE VEGETABLE GARDENS ALLOWED IN FRONT OR SIDE YARDS IN DEERFIELD BEACH!
THIS NEW ORDINANCE WILL BE PASSED AT THE NEXT COMMISSION READING.
WE BELIEVE COMMISSIONER TODD DROSKY IS THE SPONSOR OF THE ORDINANCE. WHAT A JOKE AND DISAPPOINTMENT COMMISSIONER DROSKY HAS BECOME! ANOTHER JOE MILLER!
