What is a MSTU?

A Municipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) is a funding mechanism for community members to create a special taxing district to make improvements to their neighborhood and/or community area through approval of the Board of County Commissioners. The Bayshore Beautification MSTU advisory committee is comprised of communities members within the MSTU boundary. The committee meets monthly to discuss, plan, and approve capital improvement projects that are consistent with their enabling ordinance.
