April is a busy month at the Tax Collector’s Office. The 2017 property tax season wrapped up on April 2, 2018. We now begin the process for collecting delinquent property taxes. April is your last chance to sign up for our Installment Payment Plan. The application deadline is April 30.
I want to keep you informed about important work currently underway by the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC). The CRC is reviewing Florida’s Constitution for relevance and possible revisions, a process that takes place only once every 20 years. This month I have included a CRC update and where you can find more information.
Florida Constitution Revision Commission Update
Did you know Florida is the only state that allows its state constitution to be revisited and revised through a regularly scheduled commission? The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets every 20 years to examine the relevance and applicability of Florida’s Constitution to current and future needs.
The current CRC was formed when the 2017 Regular Legislative Session convened on March 7, 2017. After conducting a series of public meetings to hear directly from Floridians, the CRC voted favorably to pursue 26 of 103 proposals as ballot initiatives for the November 2018 election. The final list of ballot initiatives is due to the Governor by May 10, 2018.
Now is the time to use your voice by calling members of the CRC and asking them to do what Floridians asked of them during the public meetings. You can learn more about the CRC and review the list of proposals and ballot initiatives by visiting www.flcrc.gov.
