Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. Unless requested via a formal open records request (see Florida Public Records Law), we will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, (e.g. pre-application meeting request).
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit information via this website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect information (such as address, telephone, and/or email address), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, responding to email, meeting requests, etc.) are granted access to information. The computers/servers in which we store information are kept in a secure environment.

Florida Public Records Law
Florida has a very broad public records law. Most written communications to or from City Employees and officials regarding City business are public records available to the public and media upon request. Your email communication may be subject to public disclosure. Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
