Current Happenings

Help us fight against a recent, unfair, unjust, and unwanted proposal to develop public water and sewage system for American Beach. While the community is not against getting a “modern” community water system, the current proposal as it is written will force a tax fee to each property and then charge each property again if they want to be connected to these new public works. This proposal was not voted on by the community and, as currently proposed, will cause irreversible damage to the environment and the greater community as many would not be able to pay such a high tax.
