COLLIER MOSQUITO CONTROL DISTRICT – BOARD POLICY ON DISTRICT EXPANSION

District Expansion Policy

Position Statement: As the population of a given area increases, it is inevitable that the District will expand.
A. The impetus for expansion can come from the community, from the health department or other agencies, or from the Board or staff of the District.
B. Justification for expansion would include the following:

    1. Public health threat.
    2. High mosquito population.
    3. Collier County permanent population estimates and projects (rough data).
    4. Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM), in terms of new and/or different ways for controlling mosquitoes.
    5. Environmental concerns.
    6. Preliminary review of geographical area by staff.

C. Alternatives to expansion:

    1. Community self-management (e.g., Steven’s Landing).
    2. Technical advisory support.
    3. Education about personal protection measures.

D. The Board was in agreement on the following points:

    1. We must allow that our responsibilities extend to the residents of the entire county, with recognition that environmentally sensitive areas are excluded (see Addendum A).
    2. It is important to maintain our status as an independent district.

E. If expansion appears justified, the next step is an actual feasibility study to include the following:

    1. Demographics of the proposed area and population projections.
    2. District resource needs (i.e., staff, aircraft, etc.).
    3. Financial considerations (what taxes are generated by the area versus the actual costs to the District to treat the area).

F. The next step is a survey of the proposed expansion area, if the Board determines a survey would be appropriate:

    1. Survey owners of improved property in the proposed expansion area.
    2. Use stamped, easy to return postcards.
      a. Allow space for short comments.
    3. Take into consideration the response rate, but this would not be determinative in justifying expansion.

G. Following study and discussion by the District’s Board, a determination will be made as to whether to expand or not.
H. If approved by the District’s Board, expansion must next be approved by the Collier Board of County Commissioners. (BOCC)

    1. Communication to the BOCC on the recommendation to expand.
    2. The Chair of the District’s Board and the Executive Director will present to the BOCC.
    3. A summary report and documentation of the actions of the District’s Board will be included in a packet to be given to the BOCC and will be the basis of the presentation.

I. If expansion is approved by the BOCC, then the District’s charter will need to be amended by legislative action.
J. When the charter is legislatively amended, residents of the expanded area are added to the tax rolls.
K. Mosquito control treatment begins.
