Minneola residents voted for 2 city council positions yesterday. By a slim margin (and a turnout of about only 500 votes), David Yeager has ousted Mayor Randy Moye from Seat #3 of the Minneola City Council. Yeager wants to avoid the fiascoes such as Minneola City Council's vote this year not to annex and build schools on the Lowndes property. This move means many Minneola children will be squeezed into already overcrowded Clermont schools - and can mean double sessions.
Says David Yeager:
My goal is to have children of every Minneola resident go to a Minneola school. We need to be in control and oversee how the city gets built.
Joe Teri won the other seat. However, he was already the incumbent and also won by a narrow margin. He is for "limiting" growth while the challenger was for "controlled" growth.
It seems the residents of Minneola are starting to get antsy for building more schools. Selective growth may be the only way to fund them.
