Additional District Documents


The budget is a financial plan that serves as the basis for expenditure decision-making and subsequent control of expenditures. The plan strives to provide program services at the levels of service established by the Board during the budget process. However, the budget must also be flexible enough to account for unexpected events and expenditures. Otherwise, levels of service in other program areas may suffer to operate within the constraints of the overall budget.

Management Services

PFM Group Consulting LLC.

pfm logoPFM Group Consulting LLC has extensive experience providing consulting and management services to special districts located throughout Florida. Our firm provides services at every stage of a district’s life from establishment to full development. We offer Financial Advisory Services and District Management Services (including Administrative Services, Accounting, Minutes and Public Records Services, and Lien Book & Tax Roll Services) to over 50 CDDs throughout the state of Florida.


Levels of service of program operations within the District are directly related to the annual operating budget. Program services include:

  • Community appearance
  • Recreational facilities
  • Street lighting
  • Infrastructure administration

During the fiscal year staff monitors the budget to maintain operational efficiency. During the annual budget process staff reviews what was budgeted against what was actually spent, and recommends increases and decreases in service levels. The Board of Supervisors, with input from the public, reviews staff’s proposals and has the final decision for the budget constraints that will determine the levels of service. The budget process typically begins in the spring and concludes in the summer, after a public hearing to ensure resident participation. Staff actions are directly related to those restrictions placed within the annual operations and maintenance budget for each fiscal year.

Service Levels

The District Manager’s responsibilities include:

  • Mandatory – This service is required either by regulatory permit or other specific requirements.
  • Essential – Those program services funded above the mandatory level and considered important to the residents.
  • Discretionary – Those services funded and which can be reviewed for sufficiency, based on service commitment by the community and the cost of the service being provided.
