Leon County declares Florida PACE Funding Agency a ‘public danger’ over home improvement loans

Leon County is taking legal steps against the Florida PACE Funding Agency over its refusal to comply with regulations on home improvement loans designed to protect consumers from high tax bills and foreclosures.

County commissioners voted unanimously July 11 to declare FPFA “a danger to the public’s health, safety or welfare” and repeal a resolution allowing the entity to operate its financing program locally. Last month, they voted to give County Attorney Chasity O’Steen the authority to take all steps up to and including litigation against the agency.

The votes were in response to a letter from FPFA earlier this year saying it wasn’t bound by county restrictions because of a Leon Circuit Court ruling in a bond validation proceeding. That assertion prompted Palm Beach and Pinellas counties to sue FPFA in April. Alachua County signaled last month it may file a lawsuit as well.
