For Basin Boards
Taxes to be collected by the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District Basin Boards-
will not be as high as previously
estimated, Donald R. Feaster,
SWFWMD executive director,
"When we passed our budg-
ets, we did not have the tax
valuations from the state depart-
ment of revenue," Feaster said.
The new valuations showed that
property values had increased
sufficiently. to allow, a lower
village rate, he said.
The new valuations mean that
property owners throughout the
area will be charged from 12
cents to one cent less on every
thousand dollars of their proper-
The final millage rates ap.
proved by the basin boards
were: Alafia, 0.56; Crystal-
Homosassa, 0.53; Hillsborough,
0.66; Northwest Hillsborough,0.0;
O k aw a h a, 0.38; Pinnellas-
Anclote, .14; Pithlachascotee,
0.43; Waccasassa, 0.0; Withlacoo-
chie, 0.45; and Peace 0.21.
The millage rates were zero
for the Northwest Hillsborough
Basin and the Waceassa basin
boards because enough money
remained in the budgets from
last year not to require any ad-
ditional funding to pay for proj-
ects in the upcoming year.
