The 2023 Florida Statutes (including Special Session C)
Bay Village has a storage tank on its property which is a "facility" as defined in section 252.82(4), Florida Statutes (1997). Pursuant to this statute, Bay Village was required to submit annual forms and reports together with $500 in annual registration fees. Those forms and reports were not submitted, nor were the annual registration fees paid from 1988 through 1997. Bay Village does not contest the $5000 due in registration fees for the applicable period. The appeal is centered over the Department's claim to late fees in the total amount of $15,000. The assessment of such late fees by the Department is discretionary and requires written notice from the Department. See § 252.85(4), Fla. Stat. (1997). If the party receiving the notice files the subject documentation and pays the applicable fee within thirty days of receipt of said notice, no late fee may be imposed. See § 252.85(4)(b).
Appellee owns lots 1c, 2c, 3c, and 4c of Clifford Addition to the City of Eustis, and has owned these lots since September 7, 1946. These lots are bounded on the west by Lake Eustis. Gottsche Avenue runs on the north side of lot 1c, which is the northernmost lot, and terminates at the shore of Lake Eustis. A city pier, open to the public, extends westward to Lake Eustis on about the center line of Gottsche Avenue. This pier is perpendicular to the shore and is 252.82 feet long, 216.7 feet of which are over water. At the westerly end of the pier the dock turns at right angles and extends southward an additional 76.6 feet. There are boathouses on the south side of the pier, and these structures overlap the extended south boundary of Gottsche Avenue a distance of 9.6 feet. The result is that if appellee's lot lines were extended the boathouses and the southward extension of the pier would overlap his lot lines, 9.6 feet in the case of the boathouses and considerably more in the case of the southerly extension of the pier. As a further result his view of the lake from his property is somewhat impaired.
