Barrier island boundary shift appears to be sailing through state legislature


A pair of bills intended to shift the county border on the barrier island to place a beachfront mansion entirely in Indian River County and an unbuilt subdivision entirely in St. Lucie County have enjoyed widespread support from Florida lawmakers, so far.

The state Senate Rules Committee voted 15-0 last Wednesday in favor of the boundary change bill sponsored by state Sen Debbie Mayfield (R-Vero).

Meanwhile, the House Local, Federal and Veteran Affairs Subcommittee voted 12-0 on Feb. 3 for the companion boundary bill sponsored by state Rep. Delores Hogan-Johnson (R-Fort Pierce). It is now before the House Ways and Means Committee.

So far, 37 lawmakers in the house and senate have voted for the bill, and none has opposed it.

The boundary change will become effective if legislation passes both chambers and is signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Indian River and St. Lucie county commissioners last year adopted resolutions supporting the boundary change at the request of Dr. Oskar Szentirmai, whose home at 2498 S. Highway A1A sits on the borderline.

County administrators agreed to shift the border so a .65-acre section of Szentirmai’s property would move to Indian River County and a 5.6-acre of the undeveloped Round Island Plantation subdivision on the west side of A1A would move to St. Lucie County.

Instead of receiving government services and property tax bills from two counties, Szentirmai and RIP owner SBM Associates LLC of Plantation would deal with just one county government if the law is enacted.
