Miami Lakes, FL - The Town and its Neighborhood Improvement Committee will cohost a County Community Meeting at 6pm on Thursday, March 23rd inside Council Chambers at Town Hall, 6601 Main Street, in Miami Lakes.
The meeting, held in partnership with County Chairman Esteban Bovo and the County’s Special Taxing District Division will educate attendees on the recent County Charter amendment that was passed on the November ballot which provided municipalities the authority to manage and create districts that sit fully within their boundaries.
A Special Taxing District is a designated area where a majority of property owners agree to a special property tax in exchange for a specific service. Special Taxing Districts gives communities the opportunity to make improvements in the public areas of their neighborhoods which could not be conveniently or equitably done otherwise. These types of improvements include: street lighting; security guard services; guardhouses; multipurpose maintenance and capital improvements/road maintenance.
For more information, please contact Chairman Bovo’s Office at 305-820-8424.
