The Palm Harbor Community Services Agency, Inc. was created in 1985 per Pinellas County Ordinance 85-28 to provide library and recreation services to the residents of the Palm Harbor Community Services District, a municipal services taxing unit.
The ad valorem tax of 0.25 mills for library service and 0.25 mills for recreation services, is $.50 for each $1,000 of assessed valuation.
The Agency is governed by an eight-member board of directors, each appointed to a 2-year term. They meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm at either the Palm Harbor Library, the East Lake Community Library or the Centre CSA Palm Harbor.
The Agency is responsible for the management of all library and recreation department funds and hires the directors of the Palm Harbor Library, East Lake Community Library, East Lake Recreation, and CSA Palm Harbor.
