Lake Padgett Estates - Florida Living at its' best!
Posted on Jan 28th, 2019 Comments (0)
A little rain and storm sewers are the topic! A resident on Lake Padgett Drive let us know that a storm drain that went from the street into the lake had collapsed. Given the run around at the County, they called the Civic Association for help. Government Affairs, committee members, Margie Bradley with the help of committee member, and resident, Linda Hutchinson, were able to contact the County Engineers working on the storm sewer project and have this address added to future work. Our subdivisions drainage system is basically just ditches at the street. At certain points, there are culverts with grates that are then piped into the lakes and canals. The County hired a contractor to locate these drainage points because the properties they run under were never recorded or deeded as easements. Therefore, they were difficult to locate and some of these sites were missed. Residents manage to find them when they cave in. So please call someone at the Civic Association so that the Government Affairs committee can deal with the problem for you. Just so you know we are working for you - because we care!

When a Pasco County Code Enforcement shows up at your property and actually sees a violation and it is the first time, the resident is given a warning. If code enforcement goes out to the same residence within the same violation within a year and sees the same violation the resident will be given a citation. A citation includes a fine or court appearance.
Building Docks on a Lake or Canal?
Posted on Mar 25th, 2018 Comments (0)
Docks on any of the LPE lakes and canals have become an issue since an accident on East Lake prompted a law suit. If you want to build a dock, a building permit is required by the County. It becomes more complicated depending on the location of the dock. First, depending on the lake the different owners and authorities need to sign the documents. Second, there are also special rules for docks built on canals. Third, you will need to indemnify the Lake Padgett Estates Special District on your homeowners policy for the dock. The County has been asked to help LPE with a brochure giving directions on the process to make it easier for our residents to build a dock correctly with minimum hassle. No one likes to have to remove a dock and start over. So let's do it right the first time. Our LPE Government Affairs Officer, Margie Bradley, will be glad to get your started. Please feel free to call 813-996-6143 for information.
