JIC Residents


Yesterday, voters in JIC approved the ballot referendum —  206 YES and  51 NO — to change the Town Charter from a Strong Mayor form of government to a Commission-led Town Manager form of government. 

This vote maintains an elected five-member Commission including an elected Mayor that will make all important policy decisions for the town. The Town Manager reports to the Mayor and Commission and executes the tasks required to run a municipality in Florida. 

The vote also ensures that Police functions in JIC can never be outsourced without a referendum vote by registered voters. 

Over the next several weeks, we will be focused on identifying the best possible candidate to fill the town manager role. Future updates will be provided as we progress along the selection process.

My fellow Commissioners and I are proud to serve a community in which 62.7 percent of residents turn out to vote. This engagement stands in strong contrast to many area towns where fewer than 15 percent of residents participate in municipal elections.

This strong turnout is a continuing sign that residents love where we live and want JIC to remain a self-governing Town in Florida. I hope past differences can be put behind us as we move forward to preserve our town and secure its future for generations to come.

If you have questions, please stop by the office.
