Moorings Bay Special Taxing District

The Moorings Bay Special Taxing District was established inMoorigns Bay.jpg 1987 following annexation of the area into the City.  The Taxing District’s Advisory Committee was created by City Council in 1988 as an “ad hoc” organization and established a 0.5 mil ad valorem tax levy to provide funding for maintenance dredging in the canals and waterways (including Doctors Pass), maintenance of aids to navigation, inspection of seawalls, and surveillance of surface water pollution. 

Doctors Pass is dredged on a three-year cycle, and while the costs of dredging Doctors Pass are currently reimbursed by County toruist development funds, the remainder of the bay system is still maintained by the taxing district.  The district maintains aids to navigation and monitors the water quaity of the bay.
