Special Districts

Special districts are units of local government created for a special purpose.  These districts can operate within a limited geographic boundary and are created by law, special act, local ordinance, rule of the Governor and Cabinet.

These districts have a governing body with policy-making powers and provide essential governmental services and facilities. The difference between special districts and local governments is that they provide specialized services and have limited powers.

Budgets

Florida Statute 189.016 requires that special districts publish budgets on their own official websites and if the district does not have a website, transmit their budget to the local governing authority for publishing.

It is the responsibility of the district to submit the website or budget information to Samantha Westen, by email swesten@leegov.com or by mail to 2115 Second St., Fort Myers, FL 33901.

Lee County is not responsible for the accuracy of content submitted by special districts.

If a special district lies within municipal boundaries contact the local governing authority directly.

More information on Special Districts can be found by visiting the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity website.
