Special Notes: (Election of members)
The WSDD Board as established in Ordinance 95-7 has a total of seven (7) elected Trustee positions.  The Trustees each serve four (4) year terms and the elections are held in even years with approximately half of the board's Trustee's being up for election in any given election year.   After the election, at the first meeting with the newly elected Trustees, the WSDD board positions are "re-assigned / established" (i.e. Trustees are not elected to a specific position).  Any registered voter who is a member of the district and who so desires can run for election to the board.  While vacancies on the board are normally filled through the county election process, if there are no candidates or only four (4) candidates, the WSDD Board can simply appoint Trustees without going through the election process. 


For anyone interested in going through the election process the following process and forms will have to be completed.

Assessment
The current assessment is $1,000 per year.  It  is an annual assessment and is collected in your Hillsborough County tax bill as a 
non-ad valorem tax (code SD 00048).  This assessment covers a calendar year (Jan- Dec) of the year you pay your taxes in. (i.e tax year 2016 would cover 1/1/16 - 12/31/16).  The WSDD has a fiscal year of October 1 - September 30.  To learn more see the above link Special District program.  

The tentative budget and adopted budget  is posted on the WSDD Minutes tab.  If there are any amendments to the budget they will also be posted there.
