Message From the Mayor

Dear Citizens of Belleview,

I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable summer! We are happy to announce that we will be having several city sponsored events later this summer, including a First Responder Meet and Greet on Saturday, September 11th. We are in the process of having the electricity at Lake Lillian upgraded. Once this is complete, we will move forward with our events. I will post more information as it becomes available!

The city recently repaired vandalized items at the bathroom at the Splash Park, including the sink faucet, ceiling fan, and soap dispensers. We also had a number of picnic tables that were destroyed, which we are in the process of replacing. Please keep an eye out for any suspicious behavior at our parks, and call the Belleview Police Department at 352-245-7044 to report crime.

I am also excited to announce that citizens will soon be able to listen to our commission meetings live on YouTube! These meetings will be “listen only,” and they should be available by the end of the summer. I will post more information once the project is complete, and you can also visit our city website at for up to date announcements on this, as well as a variety of other information.

In other news, the new Publix will be seeking a temporary CO on August 1st, with their grand opening taking place in September! We currently have yet another new business, Mavis Discount Tire, under site plan review, as well as several new shops around town.

In other news, the city recently hired a new events and promotion specialist, a new police officer, and a new Development Services Technician. Welcome to all of our new employees!

Please join us for our next regular city of Belleview commission meeting, to be held on Tuesday, July 6th, at 6:00 pm in Belleview City Hall. Also, please stop by for my open office hours, every Tuesday from 10:00 to 12:00. No appointment necessary!


Mayor Christine K. Dobkowski
