COUNTIES--CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICERS--ELECTIONS--NONPARTISAN. A county ordinance mandating nonpartisan elections for county constitutional officers is in direct conflict with the Florida Election Code regarding whether candidates nominated by major political parties in the primary election may appear on the general election ballot for county constitutional officers and is expressly preempted by the Florida Election Code.
SPECIAL DISTRICTS--BOND VALIDATION--EXTRATERRITORIAL ACTIVITY.
VIEW OPINION (login required)
A special district sought appeal of a circuit court judgment denying the validation of revenue bonds which the special district intended to issue for the purpose of financing the construction of a hospital outside the geographic boundaries established by the special district's enabling act. The Legislature did not authorize the special district to establish an out-of-district hospital where the special district's enabling act did not contain an express grant of authority to operate outside its geographical boundaries. The special district's lack of authority was not cured by an interlocal agreement. Because the special district did not have the independent authority to establish and operate an out-of-district hospital, it could not then gain that authority under the Interlocal Act.VIEW OPINION (login required)
