On February 18, 2015, the City adopted Resolution 15-02 noticing its intent, in accordance with Section 197.3632(3)(a), Florida Statutes, to utilize the uniform method for collection of a non-ad valorem special assessment to permit, design, construct, and install a water main extension for potable water services and fire flow protection along, under, over, and through portions of Fort Florida Road, River Drive, Fifteenth Street, and Fort Florida Point Road, and to impose such special assessment upon certain parcels of property specially benefitting from the Water Main Project.


Due to unusual and unique geological phenomena, the ground water and deep well water supply in the areas of Fort Florida Road, Fort Florida Point Road, 15th Street and River Drive, consists of high levels of salt and in most cases potentially harmful bacteria and additional elements which may be  harmful.  This condition exists due to a natural fault in the lime rock strata that follows the path of the St. Johns River within this area. Resident in the area have for many years attempted to acquire potable water.

A special assessment district is a mechanism used to construct public infrastructure and assess the cost to the benefiting properties. The City will place a debt issue for construction cost. The debt terms will be seven years as provided for in the City Charter.The repayment will be through non-ad valorem assessments against the benefiting properties.
