Seminole County just mailed proposed assessment notices to all property owners for a "stormwater" system. The form says they want to rip another $9,900,000 from the hard working taxpayers. Time to throw the part time commissioner bums out! There is a public hearing on September 9th at 6:00PM in Sanford for the public to let them know what you think.

This new "Non-Ad Valorem Assessment" is to pay for Stormwater Management Costs which the County incurs. This is really taking existing budget items and moving them "off budget" by using a new taxing mechanism to aid in property tax budget "reduction." It is a way to claim a reduction but bill it to us under a different label. A non-ad valorem assessment is to cover the cost of providing specific improvements or services that are of benefit to the property. These taxes are based on "benefit" not on property value. Stormwater runoff costs have been defined by type of property and the billing for our residential properties is $70.10 per year if under one acre, over one acre site the charge will be $369.95 per year. WHAT BENEFIT ARE WE GETTING - OUR HOA PAYS FOR THIS NOW!!!
