    What makes up the “Other Taxes” and “Miscellaneous Revenues”? Together they are the biggest revenue source, but it’s unclear from what those revenues are derived. What say you, William or Steve Barry?

    could cut expenses at the jail, just serve jail house meatloaf and water three meals a day, about $0.35 per meal per inmate.

    they won’t want to come back

    overall seems Escambia County is doing well. roads in better condition, have a sheriff that is paying attention & no salad on his uniform ! masks been mostly eliminated, schools back in business, businesses open for business etc. we do need term limits for elected officials but apparently the office holders ( elected ) want to keep their train on the tracks ! Many drivers still flying around like they own the roads but there’s a new Sheriff in town & might mean business. Tax & fees are reasonable compared to some surrounding Counties/States. Glad to live in n/w Florida & Escambia County!
