Largo annexations: outrageous land grab

Editor:
Largo’s City Hall land grab gestapo strikes again! The recent forced annexations (using old sewer contracts) by the city of Largo in the Long Branch Creek, Arbor Terrace and Brookstone subdivisions is an outrage.

This land grab reminds me of the invasion of Poland by Germany in 1939.

More exploitation and colonization of county neighborhoods by the big spending, tax hungry Largo City Commission. Using old forced annexation sewer hookup contracts is a shakedown and should be outlawed by the state Legislature immediately.

No one in their right mind would want to join the city of Largo. The city’s 16 percent taxes and franchise fees on electricity are extortion and would embarrass even an organized crime syndicate (county residents pay zero).

The city’s permit charges, license fees and sky high taxes are obscene.

It is clearly time for the state legislature to investigate the city of Largo for extortion.
