City of Weeki Wachee local government abolished, transferred to Hernando County

(Hernando County, FL) On June 9, 2020, Governor DeSantis signed House Bill 
1215 to abolish the City of Weeki Wachee local government and transfer all 
assets and legitimate liabilities, including substantiated debts, to Hernando 
County. As part of this Bill, the City of Weeki Wachee will become part of the 
unincorporated area of Hernando County. The millage tax rate on the tax bills 
for the properties within the City limits of Weeki Wachee, less than 15 
properties, will be removed.

Weeki Wachee State Park, operated by the Florida State Park System, will 
remain in operation including its live mermaid show. Weeki Wachee will remain 
the City of Live Mermaids, a world-renowned tourist attraction, without the 
local government organization. Additionally, House Bill 1215 will not affect 
the addresses of any properties inside or outside of the City of Weeki Wachee 
limits.

We will be looking into what brought this on and how it will affect the area.
We will upload a copy of the orders and info from this to the records section of the site soon.
