Dear Residents and Visitors,
The entire state of Florida currently falls under the High Level of Community Transmission category. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. Learn more about the current CDC recommendations by visiting the CDC’s Interim Public Health Recommendations web page.
While there is not yet a new mask mandate, out of an abundance of caution, and to protect our staff, our residents and visitors, we highly recommend wearing a facial covering/mask and maintaining the 6-foot social distancing guideline when visiting Town Hall and during Public meetings held in the 4th Floor Community Center.
Let’s all do our part. Remain vigilant, mask up, and remain safe and healthy.
No tax is due on the sale or purchase of any article of clothing, wallet, or bag, including handbags, backpacks, fanny packs and diaper bags with a selling price of $60 or less per item. Details on what items are exempt are listed in the Tax Information Publication (PDF).

Did You Know?
You may have noticed that we have added some Sidewalk Buttler cigarette butt receptacles by our trash containers at the beach entrances. Hopefully people will use them in lieu of the sand.
