BASIC INFORMATION

Basic Information

Background

The Riverbend West Community Development District (“District”) is an independent special district, created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and established by the Board of County Commissioners of Hillborough County’s approval of Ordinance No. 14-36, on November 6, 2014. The District includes within its boundaries approximately 65 acres.

 

District Infrastructure and Property

The District intends to issue its Series 2016 Bonds (“Bonds”) to fund the construction and/or acquisition of stormwater management improvements, landscaping, utilities improvements, and roadway improvements.

 

District Annual Budgets

The District will annually approve both a Series 2016 Bonds debt service budget and an Operations and Maintenance “O&M” budget. The Series 2016 Bonds require level annual debt service and so the bond debt service budget will not vary substantially from year-to-year.

 

District annual Non-Ad Valorem Assessments

The District annually collects from property owners within its boundaries both a bond debt service assessment and an O&M assessment. The bond debt service assessment helps amortize the District’s Series 2016 Bonds. The O&M assessment funds the District’s annual O&M activities.

BOARD INFORMATION

Florida Law requires that the District publish an annual meeting schedule for the fiscal year one time in a newspaper of general circulation in Hillsborough County. The Board may decide to cancel or reschedule any of its meetings, or add meetings or workshops as items of business dictate. These new meetings will be advertised in the newspaper at least seven (7) days in advance, and agendas are available on the website a week prior to the meeting.

CDD BOARD ANNOUNCEMENT

We will be appointing another homeowner to the CDD Board of Supervisors at the June CDD Meeting.  This is exciting news for us as it will give homeowners a majority on the CDD Board.

The CDD Board differs from the HOA Board in some very important ways.  Those appointed to the Board are considered public officials, just like any other state official from the Governor on down, and are required to:

1)      Take an Oath of Office
2)      File a form 1 with the Supervisor of Elections, listing sources of income, property owned, possible conflicts of interest, etc.
3)      Abide by and be subject to the Florida Sunshine Laws and Codes of Ethics
4)      Maintain copies of all emails, text messages, etc in accordance with public records laws.

Any homeowner interested should submit a BRIEF resume and the reasons you want to serve on the Board to Grant Phillips, the CDD Manager.  His email is gphillips@rizzetta.com

The resume should be emailed no later than May 29, 2018 so that there is time to have them forwarded to the Board Members for review.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR RESUME DIRECTLY TO ANY BOARD MEMBER AS THIS COULD CREATE A VIOLATION OF THE SUNSHINE LAWS!!!

If you have any questions please contact Grant Phillips directly or one of the current homeowners serving on the CDD Board, whose contact information is below.

The Board will first approve a proposed budget in the spring and will provide it to Hillsborough County at least 60 days before the budget hearing, at which time the Board will adopt the final budget and levy the resulting non-ad valorem assessments.

Assessments:

For anyone interested in adopted budgets prior to Fiscal Year 2016, please contact the District Office.
