The Olympus Community Development District (“District”) is an independent special district, created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and established by Ordinance No. 2019-48, enacted by the City Council for the City of Clermont, Florida, on December 10, 2019.The District includes within its boundaries approximately 247 acres, more or less, generally located east of U.S. Highway 27, south and west of Schofield Road, and north of Trout Lake.
Currently the land found within the District is develop funded; however, the District has the authority to impose and levy assessments on the property found within its boundaries. These assessments pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain public facilities and services of the District and are to be set annually by the governing Board of the District. These assessments, when levied, are in addition to county and other local government taxes and assessments and all other taxes and assessments provided for by law. The District also can impose certain fees to pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain District facilities.
The Board adopts the budget each year in accordance with a process outlined in the Florida Statutes. Each Fiscal Year runs from October 1 to September 30. The Board will first approve a proposed budget in the spring and will provide it to the City of Clermont and Lake County at least 60 days before the budget hearing, at which time the Board will adopt the final budget and levy the resulting non-ad valorem assessments.
Florida Law requires that the District publish an annual meeting schedule for the fiscal year one time in a newspaper of general circulation in Lake County. The Board may decide to cancel or reschedule any of its meetings, or add meetings or workshops as items of business dictate. These new meetings will be advertised in the newspaper at least seven (7) days in advance, and agendas are available on the website a week prior to the meeting.

Levels of service of program operations within the District are directly related to the annual operating budget. Program services include:
- Community appearance
- Recreational facilities
- Street lighting

During the fiscal year staff monitors the budget to maintain operational efficiency. During the annual budget process staff reviews what was budgeted against what was actually spent, and recommends increases and decreases in service levels. The Board of Supervisors, with input from the public, reviews staff’s proposals and has the final decision for the budget constraints that will determine the levels of service. The budget process typically begins in the spring and concludes in the summer, after a public hearing to ensure resident participation. Staff actions are directly related to those restrictions placed within the annual operations and maintenance budget for each fiscal year.
