Can we have a public vote on the Special Assessment District?
The Special Assessment District was legally established by circuit court order in May 2019 and therefore gives FLTF the authority to assess property owners under Part 307. We will survey residents in January/February 2021 about the assessment and conduct public hearings in 2021 to get property owner input.
What happens to the property assessment if I sell my property?
The assessment will appear on the property taxes so the new owner will simply continue to pay the annual assessment. Property owners are not required to pay off the assessment if they sell their property.
Is FLTF using the same factors (headwater, amount of frontage, adjoining properties, etc.) to determine what each parcel's assessment will be?
We are still working out the details of the assessment and have not yet determined the factors that will impact the amount of assessment at this time.
