Town Clerk

Staff recommends approval of Ordinance 2022-03 (Land Development Regulations)


On May 16, 2022, the Town Clerk brought before the Town Commission an analysis of the pros and cons of issuing Business Tax Receipts. Upon hearing the benefit to business owners and the expense of time to perform that function the Commission voted unanimously to allow the drafting of an ordinance to eliminate Local Business Taxes in Lady Lake.

The changes required to remove all references to Business Tax Receipts necessitated updates to both the Code of Ordinances and the Land Development Regulations which is why there are two ordinances being presented on this matter.

The Town Commission approved the first reading of Ordinance 2022-03 on June 6, 2022.

Adoption of this ordinance would not take effect until October 1, 2022.


$47,000 minus expenses.
