Port of Palm Beach

The Port of Palm Beach District is an independent special taxingdistrict (an autonomous port), a sub-division of the state of Florida.
It was established under the provisions of the Laws of Florida, Acts of
1915, Chapter 7081, as amended and supplemented. The Port District is
located in Palm Beach County, Florida. It covers a land area of 971
square miles or approximately fifty percent of the County area.

The District has statutory authority to levy ad valorem millage

Commissioners of the Port of Palm Beach District have, for the
thirty-third consecutive year, voted not to levy any millage to the
property owners of the Port District. Operating under Florida Sunshine

Laws, all monthly Board meetings are open to the public.​
