BASIC INFORMATION

Introduction to Alafia Preserve Community Development District

Introduction to the Alafia Preserve Community Development District On April 5, 2007, the City Commission of the City of Mulberry, Florida adopted Ordinance 5-2007 establishing the Alafia Preserve Community Development District (“the District”), a special purpose form of local government established pursuant to and governed by Chapter 190, Florida Statutes.

Currently the land found within the District is undeveloped and is developer funded; however, the District has the authority to impose and levy taxes or assessments, or both taxes and assessments, on the property found within its boundaries. These taxes and/or assessments pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain public facilities and services of the District and are to be set annually by the governing Board of the District. These taxes and assessments, when levied, are in addition to county and other local governmental taxes and assessments and all other taxes and assessments provided for by law. The District also imposes certain fees to pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain District facilities.

BOARD INFORMATION

These new meetings will be advertised in the newspaper at least seven (7) days in advance, and agendas are available on the website a week prior to the meeting.

Budgets:

The Board adopts the budget each year in accordance with a process outlined in the Florida Statutes.  Each Fiscal Year runs from October 1 to September 30. The Board will first approve a proposed budget in the spring and will provide it to the City of Mulberry and Polk County  at least 60 days before the budget hearing, at which time the Board will adopt the final budget and levy the resulting non-ad valorem assessments.

For anyone interested in adopted budgets prior to fiscal year 2017, please contact the District Office.

Audited Financial Statements:

As the District’s audited financial statements are prepared by an independent auditor, and accepted by the Board, we will post them on the website for your information. If you are interested in an audit for a previous fiscal year, please contact the District Office. For more information on audits, please visit http://www.myflorida.com/audgen/.
