R4: Application of Chapter 373.1963, F.S.
staff is building the District's budget for the Fiscal Year 1977-78.
its effort to accommodate the changes to the District's boundaries and
collection of taxes for the West Coast Regional Water Supply Authority,
staff requests guidance as to the Administrative Procedures and the
ent of the law on the tax levying and collection for the Authority.
cifically, does the staff consider the levy and collection of the village
dlar to a basin millage and notify the tax collectors and property
raisers of the affected counties of this position? It has ramifications
how this is presented for the commissions could be charged to the District
to the Authority if treated as a separate taxing entity. Also, the
ties outside of the Authority's jurisdiction but within a Basin subject
the Authority, aregoing to be prevented from collecting the full basin
Llage because of the Authority's use or a portion of the Basin's village.
would seem feasible to treat the Authority as a separate taxing entity
c administrative purposes and ease in handling of the taxes. However; your
?ut on the problems is requested. It is requested that you advise when
Eore April 20, 1977 a meeting could be set up to finalize the approach the
strict will pursue on this matter. Your time with the legislature in
ssion is limited, but a meeting to get your incite and thoughts on the
tter will be a great help to the District staff.
ry truly yours,
