Ft Lauderdale defers FPL decision till Oct. 20

Fort Lauderdale commissioners unanimously voted to defer a franchise agreement with FPL for at least another two weeks while the commission  seeks more information and allows for more public input. Numerous residents spoke against the planned 30-year contract despite the fact that discussions on the issue didn’t begin till close till midnight and went until 2:30 a.m. The majority of residents were highly against the contract and asked that Fort Lauderdale deny the contract while the city explores options to have a municipal grid, solar options and other means of lowering the cost and using more renewable energy.

BrowardNET will have more details tomorrow.
