Town of Beverly Beach, Florida

News and Events
We are transitioning soon to a newly formatted web site.
Please bear with us as we work to make your visit more pleasant!
January 17, 2018


The period to qualify for the March 2018 election (by Petition) is now open!  Deadline for qualification is by noon on Friday, December 8, 2017.  You MUST see the Town Clerk to obtain the qualifying information and procedures, which are very specific.  Those who miss the Petition deadline and wish to run for office must pay a $90 fee during the January 2018 qualifying period.


The Beverly Beach Code of Ordinances is available online through the Municode web
site!  Anyone with computer access may visit the following site to study the Town's laws:

Please be aware that the online Code is current only through 2012.  Ordinances passed after that date are available in hard copy form at the Town Hall, or by pdf electronically if you contact the Town Clerk.  The Town is currently working with law students at the University
of Florida, their professor, and Town Attorney Dennis Bayer to get the Code fully updated.  This will take several months to full completion.  Once on the Municode site, click on the "Library" tab, select, Florida, then click on Beverly Beach.  You may search for key words and phrases to locate specific laws and regulations about which you may be interested.

The Commission will conduct a brief "Special Meeting" on Monday, January 8, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. for the purpose of appointing a temporary replacement for Commissioner Sandra Siepietoski through the March election.  Sadly, due to irreparable damage to her home in the hurricanes, Sandra had to relocate and her change in residency forced her to submit her resignation.  The Town has lost a valuable public servant and we are sorry to see Sandra leave her term early.  Sandra's seat is open for a new two-year term through the March 6, 2018, election.

Interested residents should see the Town Clerk right away if you wish to run for any of the three upcoming vacancies.  Seats held by Commissioners Sund and Wingo are at the end of term and are also open to interested candidates.  Both Mr. Sund and Ms. Wingo have submitted qualifying paperwork to run for re-election.  If more than three candidates file for the open seats the election will be conducted on March 6, 2018, with the three receiving the highest number of votes being sworn in.


The public is welcome to attend all meetings conducted by the Commission.  All meetings are held in the "beach house" meeting hall behind Town Hall.

 The next
Regular Monthly Commission Meeting will be held on Monday, January 8, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. 
Agendas are available at the Town Hall or by calling the Clerk.

Commission meetings are typically held the FIRST MONDAY
of each month, unless otherwise noticed or moved due to
a holiday weekend.  Meetings are conducted in the building
behind the Town Hall.  Enter through the door on the north
side of the building (facing the Campground).

Anyone who wishes to attend and has mobility issues or needs special considerations should contact the Town Clerk at least 72 hours in advance at 386-439-6888.

See the article on the Resources page for details!
