Palms of Terra Ceia Bay CDD (the "District") Disclosure: Please be advised that "the District', a local unit of special purpose government created under Florida law, has constructed and is responsible for the maintenance of certain improvements, infrastructure and facilities within the community.

This month’s CDD meeting was held at 3pm on November 8 at the Back Bay Grill.  

Last month I reported on Storm Damage, mainly the trellis behind the gatehouse.  We have since acquired a bid to fix the trellis, and the Board voted to award the job to J&D Welding in Palmetto.

We are hoping it will be repaired by December’s end. 

I would like to congratulate Supervisors Barkholz, Swetland and myself for keeping our seats on the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay CDD Board of Supervisors in this year’s election.  Even though we ran unopposed, it was a battle well fought.  Reorganization of Officers will be voted on at next month’s meeting.  

Finally, we have gotten through our spending freeze.  We have been very diligent in tightening our wallet and not spending on any unnecessary items.  We obviously will be very aware of our cash flow in the future while we rebuild our reserves, but we will also continuously strive to keep up with the maintenance programs that keep Palms of Terra Ceia Bay looking great.  We will start receiving money this month and can get back on track with any new projects that might develop this spring.

Owners have requested the Board to consider doggie stations. Henry checked how much they would cost, as did Supervisor Weidner, and after discussing the possibility of adding some in the community, the Board negated the idea, determining it was an asset only to a particular group of residents.  During Public Comments, residents agreed with the Board’s decision and expressed the view that they did not want to see any more posts, signs or fixtures planted alongside the Boulevard. And, that they regularly carried 2-3 bags with them when walking their dogs. As such, the residents see no reason for the community to pay for bags and stations.   

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you at the next CDD meeting which will be on December 13 at 3pm.  

Judi O’Connor, Chairman

Palms of Terra Ceia CDD
