Message From the Mayor

Dear Citizens of Belleview,

Please join us for some fun and exciting upcoming events. Our next Friday Foodie Fest will be held on February 25th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm at beautiful Lake Lillian Park! This event will feature a myriad of food trucks, vendors, and free activities for kids! Also, join us on Saturday, April 2nd for our annual fishing tournament for children. Children up to age 15 may participate in this event. We will offer prizes in several categories. The tournament begins promptly at 9:00 am and ends at 12:00 PM. Afterwards, prizes will be awarded outside of our new community center, in front of the fish mural. The Belleview Police Department will be providing a free community cookout for all attendees. The city will also hold the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the community center at this time. Please contact Mariah Moody at 352-233-2109 for more information or to register your child for the tournament.

In other news, the Florida Department of Transportation has resumed the resurfacing and construction project on US Highway 441. They will be adding several new medians and turning lanes throughout the city, as well as bike lanes. They will also be constructing two pedestrian crosswalks and removing the on-street parking. In addition, they will be constructing a multiuse trail, beginning at SE 102nd Place and ending near the Sheriff’s substation, on SE 80th Street. This project is wholly the responsibility of the FDOT, but if you have any questions, please call me and I will do my best to get the answers that you need!

I hope everyone enjoyed the new informational video that the city posted on Facebook a few weeks ago. I will be filming a video once a month, in order to keep everyone informed on things such as upcoming events, new businesses, and other items of interest. The video can be viewed on the city’s Facebook page.

Please join us for our next regular city commission to be held on Tuesday, March 1st, at 6:00 PM. All of our meetings are held in Belleview City Hall, in the city commission auditorium.

Please stop in during my open office hours, held every Tuesday from 10:00 to 12:00.

Sincerely,

Mayor Christine K. Dobkowski
