The Town Commission of the Town of Longboat Key, Florida hereby provides notice, pursuant to Section 197.3632(3)(a), Florida Statutes, of its intent to use the uniform method of collecting non-ad valorem special assessments for more than one year to be levied within the area encompassed by the Town boundaries, for the cost of providing capital improvements associated with the remaining undergrounding of electrical utilities in certain neighborhoods including street lighting installation, and communications/fiber optics utilities in certain neighborhoods within the Town (the “Neighborhood Project”).  The uniform method allows for the collection of special assessments on the annual ad valorem property tax bill mailed each November.  The Town Commission will consider the adoption of a resolution electing to use the uniform method of collecting such assessments to fund the Neighborhood Project, commencing in November 2018, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes, at a public hearing to be held at 1:00 p.m. EST, December 4, 2017, at the Town Commission Chamber at Longboat Key Town Hall, 501 Bay Isles Road, Longboat Key, Florida 34228.  Such resolution will state the need for the levy and will contain a legal description of the boundaries of the real property subject to the levy.  Copies of the proposed form of resolution are on file at the Longboat Key Town Clerk’s Office, Town Hall, 501 Bay Isles Road, Longboat Key, Florida. All interested persons are invited to attend. In the event any person decides to appeal any decision by the Commission with respect to any matter relating to the consideration of the resolution at the referenced public hearing, a record of the proceeding may be needed and in such an event, such person may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the public hearing is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence on which the appeal is to be based.


In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 286.26, Florida Statutes, persons with disabilities needing special accommodation to participate in such public hearing should contact the Town Clerk’s Office at (941) 316-1999 at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the date of the public hearing.
