Leesburg-- Lee County's growing pains are causing elected officials to look at new ways to pay for over-burdened public services.

Developments, like the multi-million dollar Oakland Plantation, will place a heavy burden on the county to provide additional public safety, roads, sewer and other services.

At a special called meeting, commissioners listened to an expert discuss impact fees that would help pay for these services.

An impact fee is an extra tax for new people and new industry moving into the county to help cover the cost of services they use.

The fee would likely be less than $1,000 dollars a year. The commission will discuss the issue again at their April 5th meeting.
