Hello readers! We hope your Independence Day celebrations were nothing short of fantastic and filled with joy. As we transition back to our regular lives post-holiday, there are several important updates and opportunities within our community that we want to bring to your attention.


BOCC Meeting & Budget Workshops


  • BOCC Meeting : We're excited to notify you that the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, 7-9, at 9 am. If you would like to review the agenda before the meeting, you can access it here. Commissioners' office 2401 SE Monterey Rd, Stuart.

  • Budget Workshops : Additionally, mark your calendars for the upcoming BOCC budget workshops for taxpayers for the fiscal year 2025.
