District Annual Budgets

 The District will annually approve both a Series 2020 Bonds debt service budget and an operations and maintenance “O&M” budget.  The Series 2020 Bonds require level annual debt service and so the bond debt service budget will not vary substantially from year-to-year.

District annual Non-Ad Valorem Assessments

The District annually collects from property owners within its boundaries both a bond debt service assessment and an O&M assessment.  The bond debt service assessment helps amortize the District’s Series 2020 Bonds.  The O&M assessment funds the District’s annual O&M activities.

pfm logoPFM Group Consulting LLC has extensive experience providing consulting and management services to special districts located throughout Florida. Our firm provides services at every stage of a district’s life from establishment to full development. We offer Financial Advisory Services and District Management Services (including Administrative Services, Accounting, Minutes and Public Records Services, and Lien Book & Tax Roll Services) to over 50 CDDs throughout the state of Florida.


Levels of service of program operations within the District are directly related to the annual operating budget. Program services include:

  • Community appearance
  • Recreational facilities
  • Street lighting
  • Infrastructure administration

During the fiscal year staff monitors the budget to maintain operational efficiency. During the annual budget process staff reviews what was budgeted against what was actually spent, and recommends increases and decreases in service levels. The Board of Supervisors, with input from the public, reviews staff’s proposals and has the final decision for the budget constraints that will determine the levels of service. The budget process typically begins in the spring and concludes in the summer, after a public hearing to ensure resident participation. Staff actions are directly related to those restrictions placed within the annual operations and maintenance budget for each fiscal year.

Service Levels

The District Manager’s responsibilities include:

  • Mandatory – This service is required either by regulatory permit or other specific requirements.
  • Essential – Those program services funded above the mandatory level and considered important to the residents.
  • Discretionary – Those services funded and which can be reviewed for sufficiency, based on service commitment by the community and the cost of the service being provided.
