Message From the Mayor

Dear Citizens of Belleview,

We have a lot of exciting things going on in our little city! The new Publix is finally open, and it really was worth the wait! The store boasts a variety of new features, such as a sushi bar, a serve yourself candy and nut isle, a liquor store, and an upstairs mezzanine for in store dining. The store is much larger than the old one, and it has a lot more to offer. There are also several self-checkout stations, which can be a big help if you are in a hurry.

In other exciting news, the ribbon cutting for the Advent Health ER is going to take place on September 30th. This ER will provide emergency services to the citizens of the City of Belleview, as well as to the surrounding community. It will be open 24/7 and will have 12 beds. This 18 million dollar facility will offer x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, and onsite laboratory services. It is providing more than 100 jobs to the Belleview community.

On the lighter side, the city is in the process of coordinating with a local mural artist to paint our long-awaited murals on the new community center. We also have several new businesses in the community, including Bearded Browncoat Comics and Games, located at 10325 S. US Hwy 441 (in the new Publix Plaza) and Conklin Customs, LLC – Automotive Repair Shop, located at 10129 US Hwy 441.

If you or someone that you know is looking for a great job with outstanding benefits, the city is currently hiring a Parks Services Worker, a Police Officer, and a Utility Services Technician. Please visit www.belleviewfl.org for more information.

The City will be holding our second annual Trunk or Treat on October 30th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM at beautiful Lake Lillian. This event will boast free candy, hayrides, games and an opportunity to dress up in a safe environment. We will also be holding at job fair at the Belleview Public Library on October 20th from 11:00 to 2:00 pm. Please RSVP to 233-2122. In addition, there will be a community yard sale at Lake Lillian on October 16th, from 8:00 to 1:00 pm.
