What is an MSTU?
A Municipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) is a funding mechanism for community members to create, through approval of the Board of County Commissioners, a special taxing district to make improvements to their neighborhood and/or community area. Providing additional services based on community desires.
Collier County Public Transit & Neighborhood Enhancement Division oversees the administration of the MSTU's with Board appointed advisory committee members. The MSTU's advisory committees comprised of community members within the MSTU boundary. These committees meet monthly to discuss, plan, and approve capital improvement projects that are consistent with their enabling Ordinance. These monthly meetings are publicly noticed. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings please click here. All of these committees are regulated by the Sunshine Law and must follow the Collier County policies and procedures.
