Thanks to FAC’s low-cost, low-interest, financing option available through the Florida Local Government Finance Program (FLGFP), two counties are addressing important needs in their communities. On Florida’s west coast, Sarasota County will be purchasing new voting machines in time for election season, as well as completing Phase II of a beach restoration project. On the east coast, St. Johns County will be purchasing much needed E-911 and Fire Rescue equipment. Now in its 20th year, FLGFP is a short- to medium-term loan program geared toward helping local governments meet a variety of infrastructure and capital needs. Funding has been used for landfills, water and sewer facilities, courthouses, spring training complexes, library construction, vehicles, and more.
