MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN 

 

The Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Board of Supervisors met on July 14 at 3pm in the Back Bay dining room.  Supervisors sit at their own tables with 6-foot distances; and residents/guests sit at separate tables distancing as well.    Masks are required to attend the CDD meetings until otherwise advised.     As a reminder, all CDD meetings are now scheduled in the dining room at 3PM on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Because we have been working on the budget for next year, the agenda was pretty much just the budget.  After discussions on budget line items, the Board determined that we would present the budget, as proposed, to the public at our September meeting.  This meeting will include a public hearing, at which time the budget will be voted on.   By the way, assessments will remain the same.  This will be the 2nd year in a row that there is no increase to your CDD taxes.

How about those roads?  The roadwork is progressing smoothly with little interruption to our daily lives.  And the work began almost as soon as the contract was signed.  I have heard only good things about the roads finally being paved. This will “freshen up” our community and invite prospective buyers to have a look at homes for sale.  I think everyone will be very, very happy with the work once it is finished.

The iron gates have been refurbished, except for some new hinges on one of the exit gates.  I will notify all HOA’s once we are ready to start closing them at night.  Obviously, there is no sense in closing them until the roadwork is done.

You will soon be seeing a blue barrel at the gatehouse.  It is “food drive” time of the year.  The Food Bank of Manatee, a plus program of Meals on Wheels will be offering a direct distribution of meals for families free for several days.  You know the drill – canned and boxed foods and toiletries are especially needed.

Manatee County Emergency Management will be supplying us with copies of “Disaster Planning Guides”.  As soon as we receive them, they will be available for you to pick up at the gatehouse.  

See you next month…. And please stay safe.  

 

Judi O’Connor

Chairman
