A Resolution of the City of Coral Gables, Florida, relating to the provision of Fire Protection Services, Facilities and Programs in the City of Coral Gables, Florida; reimposing Fire Protection Assessments against assessed property located within the City, for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2019; approving the rate of assessment; approving the Assessment Roll; and providing for an effective date.

Body

The Initial Assessment Resolution (Resolution Number 2009-231) was adopted August 25, 2009, and the Final Assessment Resolution (Resolution Number 2009-267) was adopted September 22, 2009.  Ordinance Number 2009-37 was adopted August 25, 2009 authorizing the imposition and collection of fire protection assessments against property, but was replaced with the Master Service Assessment Ordinance in 2015 (No. 2015-09).

 

The Ordinance requires the City Commission to adopt an Annual Assessment Resolution which establishes the rates of assessment and approves the Assessment Roll for the upcoming Fiscal Year, with such amendments as the City Commission deems appropriate, after hearing comments and objections of all interested parties. This resolution is the Annual Assessment Resolution.  It reimposes the Fire Protection Assessments using the procedures provided by the Ordinance, including the tax bill collection method for the Fiscal Year beginning on October 1, 2019, and contains and references a brief and general description of the fire protection services, facilities and programs to be provided to Assessed Property; approves the method of apportioning the Fire Protection Assessed Cost to compute the Fire Protection Assessments; establishes the  rates of assessment; levies and imposed the assessments; and approves the Assessment Roll.
