City Council approves measure to withdraw proposed Skyway gas tax money, reports Florida Times-Union

The money still in play for Skyway conversion would be for the existing 2.5 mile elevated structure. Other amendments would seek to wipe out that as well but those won’t come up for a vote today — David Bauerlein (@DavidBauerlein) May 12, 2021 — David Bauerlein (@DavidBauerlein) May 12, 2021

The City Council may vote on the tax increase by May 25, according to the newspaper. That amendment may be discussed during next week’s city council meeting.

City Council votes 16-2 to cut by $132 million the amount of proposed gas tax increase money that would go to extending the Skyway to downtown area neighborhoods. Amendment leaves intact $247 million that could go to the Skyway conversion While the amendment, which removed $132 million from the Skyway, does not specify where the extra money would go, there is another amendment to shift the money to the Emerald Trail construction project, the Florida Times-Union reported.
