Ocala resident says Marion County Commissioners don’t care about school capacity, they want to ‘build, build, build’

To the Editor:

After reading Nancy Castro’s recent letter to the editor regarding schools already at max capacity, can’t handle additional homes, it reminded me of a a Marion County Commission meeting that I recently attended. The commissioners were set to vote on a 320 home development in NE Ocala when a citizen commented that the nearby elementary school was already at max capacity. Marion County Commissioner Carl Zalak abruptly responded that it wasn’t the Marion County Commissioners problem, it was the school systems problem. I really don’t think the Marion County Commissioners care about schools at capacity, inadequate infrastructure, etc. They are sadly of the attitude of build, build, build.
