Letter from ACLU
On March 5, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Broward Chapter sent a letter to the city of Plantation regarding reported "complaints" they had received about the city erecting holiday displays on public property. For the past two years, the city has put up Christmas, Hanukkah and winter secular items up at Liberty Tree Park. The ACLU wrote that it was a violation of the separation of church and state.
On March 23, Plantation Mayor Diane Veltri Bendekovic responded that "The City is aware of your position, and will take it under advisement."
On June 26, the ACLU Broward Chapter followed up asking if the city was planning on putting the display up again, as they were "deeply concerned about this issue."
