Special District

Special District Accountability Program

Every parcel of land in Florida is covered by at least one special district. Special districts serve a necessary and useful function by providing services to residents, businesses, and property. Special districts generate billions in revenues for Florida’s economy, create private-sector jobs, and have a substantial impact on the lives of every Floridian and on the state’s economy. For these reasons, special districts must be held highly accountable. Chapter 189, Florida Statutes, Uniform Special District Accountability Act (the “Act”) holds all special districts accountable and accessible to state agencies, the municipalities and counties in which they operate, and the citizens they serve.
