About Coral Bay
The Coral Bay CDD is a special-purpose unit of local government authorized by Chapter 189 and Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes, as amended. The City Commission of Margate Florida created Coral Bay CDD by City of Margate Ordinances 89-22, RZ-3-89, and 89-23 in November 1989, granting those special powers to the CDD as set forth in Section 190.012(1) and (2)(a), and (d) F.S.
The Coral Bay CDD is organized similarly to other local governments in Florida. The legislative body of the CDD is a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors (the Board). The Board sets policy for the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Manager and District Counsel. Staff members operate in a manner very similar to a County Administrator and County Attorney. District Management staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.
The Coral Bay CDD is responsible for creating and managing a budget and determining the annual CDD assessment. Public hearings are held on Coral Bay’s CDD assessments and the Coral Bay CDD’s budget is subject to annual independent audit. The Coral Bay CDD levies its assessments on a per home basis. There ar 997 homes in the Coral Bay CDD currently levied at $1,410.19 per home. Statutory authority for levying these assessment is granted under Florida Statutes Ch. 170.01, 190.021, and 197.3631.
The CDD manages and maintains Coral Bay’s streets, sidewalks, landscaping, parks, pools, playgrounds, lake and canals, and security. The business of the CDD Board of Supervisors is conducted in the “Sunshine”, which means that meetings and records are open to the public in accordance with Section 286.011, Florida Statutes. The Coral Bay CDD also operates under the ethics provision defined in Chapter 112 and Chapter 190 of the Florida Statues as well as the provisions set forth by the Florida Commission on Ethics
Coral Bay consists of 997 homes in eight villages, each with its own Homeowners’ Association:
