The Acme Improvement District assesses for storm water management and infrastructure maintenance through non-ad valorem assessments which are levied on a resident’s annual property tax bill.  The chart above shows the per-unit Acme assessment from FY 2011 ($200) to FY 2020 ($230).  The $30 increase in the assessment was first levied in Fiscal Year 2015 and is used to fund roadway drainage repairs and storm water system improvements to reduce flooding during extreme storm events.  The $30 additional assessment will be levied for a ten year period ending in FY 2025.

The Acme assessment is based on acreage expressed in units corresponding to portions of acres.  The table below illustrates the unit calculation method:

Parcel SizeNumber of Units
Up to 1.49 Acres1
1.50 - 2.49 Acres2
2.50 - 3.49 Acres 3
3.50 - 4.49 Acres 4

 

The statutory authority for the levy of fees and assessments is provided under Florida Statutes Chapters 189 and 298.

The District is divided into assessment units based on the relative benefit to each area.  The distribution of the units and relative benefit are show in the following chart.
