Niceville Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce Support

The Board of Directors at the September Meeting voted to support the passing of the the Okaloosa County Referendum to impose a one-half cent surtax to fund essential improvements and infrastructure.

 

After meeting with a county representative, reviewing the proposed projects which would be funded and careful consideration, we believe that the increased funds are needed to support public safety, transportation and stormwater projects for our growing communities. Click here for a list of projects which will be funded with the additional one-half cent surtax.
