SPRING HILL — Five candidates have qualified to run for two seats on the Sterling Hill Community Development District Board of Supervisors.
Vying for Seat 4 are Frances Krause and Francis Zuilkowski, both of whom live on Copper Hill Drive. The three candidates for Seat 5 are Louis Jami L. Bost of Bramble Wood Loop, Louis Earl Peters of Greystone Drive and Jo-Ann Polletta of Brackenwood Drive.
The candidates will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot only in the Sterling Hill community, which lies on either side of Elgin Boulevard on the east edge of Spring Hill.
Developers of some communities issue community development bonds to pay for certain amenities. Developers make the initial payments on the bonds, but the expenses eventually are picked up by people who purchase homes.
Acting somewhat like homeowners associations, the elected boards oversee community property and make financial decisions. They are subject to the state's public meetings and records laws, and their elections are conducted by the county Supervisor of Elections Office.
