Message From the Mayor

Dear Citizens of Belleview,

Please join us for our annual Fishing Tournament for kids, up to age 15. It will held at Lake Lillian on April 17th from 9:00 to 12:00. You can register by calling Mariah Moody at 352-233-2109, or you can register the day of the event, at 8:30 AM. Prizes will be offered in several categories, including largest fish and most fish. I would like to thank Toomey Tools for sponsoring this event, and the Belleview Youth Commission for agreeing to volunteer to help out!

I would like to take a moment to welcome Mr. Bob Titterington to the City of Belleview. Mr. Titterington will be serving as the city’s new Public Works Director. Mr. Bruce Phillips is retiring, and Mr. Titterington has been hired to take his place. His first day will be on April 19th. Previously, he worked for the City of Brooksville, he worked in the private sector, including planning and development, site plans, and construction administration, and most recently, he was employed by Marion County as their Utility Engineering Manager. Belleview is excited to have him on board!

I would also like to take a moment to thank Mr. Phillips for all that he has accomplished at the City of Belleview! He has been a pleasure to work with, bringing a number of projects to fruition for our citizens. I wish him a happy, healthy, and relaxing retirement!

In other news, both the new Publix and Advent Health have started on the interior construction of their buildings. It won’t be long before both are open for business! I also had the pleasure of trying Belleview’s newest restaurant, Kashmin’s Kitchen, the other day. They carry a delicious variety of Caribbean themed food, at very reasonable prices. They are located at 10915 US Highway 441, in the plaza across from CenterState Bank. We also have another restaurant moving into that same plaza very soon – 110th Street Tapas. It’s very exciting to see all of these new businesses moving into our city!

Finally, please visit the City of Belleview’s website at We recently redesigned our website, in order to make it even more informative and efficient.  I encourage everyone to take a few moments and check it out! You can easily find meeting dates, agendas, and forms, and you can also pay your water bill online!

Please join us for our next regular City of Belleview commission meeting, to be held on Tuesday, April 20th at 6:00 PM in Belleview City Hall.


Mayor Christine K. Dobkowski
