How is the assessment decided?


The WDID hired a consultant to review all aspects of the District and find the fairest possible way to assess the $100,000 on the 56 properties. It was determined that a percentage of the assessed taxable value was the fairest method.

Where does the WDID Board get the power to assess?


The original authorizing legislation empowered the WDID Board to assess up to $100,000. Resolution 2016-033 explicitly allows the assessment for fiscal year 2017, and Resolution 2017- 055 authorizes the assessment for fiscal years 2018 through 2024.  

How will the money be spent?


The WDID Board will decide how to spend the funds. A portion will necessarily be allocated for administration of the statutory requirements.
Here is the  WDID 2018-2019 budget.
Here is the WDID 2017-2018 budget.  
Here is the 2016-2017 WDID budget. Since this was the WDID's first year in existence, there will not be revenues to spend until December 2016.

As a special dependent district, the WDID is required to file an annual report to the Florida Department of Financial Services in June of every year. Here is a link to FDFS.
