At their meeting on Thursday, September 28th, the North Palm Beach Village Council took the following actions:

  • Issued a proclamation recognizing Palm Beach State Collage's 90th Anniversary.
  • Approved on 2nd reading, a final property tax rate of 6.90 mils, which equals $6.90 for every $1,000 of taxable property value for 2024, and a proposed final budget of $41,226,108.
  • Approved a request by Village Staff to amend the Zoning Code to repeal the single family massing provisions adopted by the Village Council in 2022. The change is intended to bring the Code into compliance with new Senate Bill 250, which was enacted after the Council approved the single-family massing provisions and was made retroactive to nullify the Village Code.
  • Approved a request by Village Staff to amend the Zoning Code, combining the Planning Commission and the Village Board of Adjustment, and renaming the body as the Planning and Zoning Adjustment Board. The proposal was approved by the Commission last week.
  • Approved on 1st reading, changing the date of the March 2024 General Election to coincide with the Statewide Presidential Preference Primary.
