Yesterday Senator Fasano moved to amend SB 1012 to eliminate submerged land lease fees for single-family and multi-family residential docking facilities.
If approved, not only would the existing exemption for single-family homes continue (and provide additional benefits to owners of larger single-family properties), but multi-family residential properties will not have to pay submerged land lease fees in the future. Community Associations Institute (“CAI”) a national non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing community association operations, primarily through outreach, education and advocacy efforts, led the charge against fee increases for community associations.
The amendment is scheduled to be considered on Thursday, April 16, 2009.
