Message From the Mayor
Dear Citizens of Belleview,
Please be advised that I am now holding open office hours each Tuesday from 10:00 to 12:00. Feel free to drop by to discuss any ideas or concerns that you may have! You can also call me at 352-400-1729 if you would like to make an appointment! Also, please visit the Belleview Police Department Facebook page when you have a moment. You will find lots of helpful information, as well as the new “Behind the Badge” series, which introduces the public to one of our police officers each month.
The city has recently issues permits for several new businesses in the city. Tire Guys of Belleview will be located at 12006 SE Highway 484. The Spoon Lagoon ice cream shop will be located at 5922 SE Abshier Blvd., and Zhush Up (a retail gift shop) will be located 4849 SE 110th Street Road #49. Advent Health will be holding the ribbon cutting for their new Emergency Department on November 19th. This will be located on the corner of 441/301, across from Dunkin Donuts.
The city is tentatively planning on holding a limited contact Trunk or Treat at Lake Lillian for Halloween. I will keep you posted as more information becomes available! We will also be lighting Christmas lights at Lake Lillian in December– however, the light up will be virtual this year. We will also be holding a “best decorated home” contest. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
In other news, the basketball equipment will be installed at the community center soon, and they will be starting on the murals in the near future. Little League Baseball, Softball, and Soccer are all also starting up for the fall, at the Belleview Sports Complex. It’s nice to see our kids getting back to normal!
Commission Candidate Wilma Loar withdrew her candidacy last week, so there will be no city election in Belleview this year. Bo Smith, Gary Ernst, and myself have the honor of serving the citizens for four more years.
Please join us for our next regular city of Belleview commission meeting, to be held on Tuesday, October 6th at 6:00 pm. You may attend in person or via telephone.
Mayor Christine K. Dobkowski
