Alligator Point Taxpayers Association

The Alligator Point Taxpayers Association (APTA), the homeowners association on Alligator Point, recently modified its by-laws to expand the geographic service area to include St. Teresa and Bay North areas. Our service area now includes all of the area included in Alligator Point/St. Teresa Fire District.

Our mission is to work together as a community to represent our interest in Franklin County. Together we can maintain and possibly improve our future on the West end of Franklin County.

We have and will continue to represent our members as Franklin County property owners, to continue as an effective voice before the various councils of local, state, and federal government.

APTA is always working for the property owners of Eastern Franklin County:   

  • Working to assure our area has representation in the affairs of Franklin County
  • Working to control and coexist with the Florida Black Bears on our end of the county
  • Working with the sheriff, fire and emergency services on homeowner safety and security.
  • Assuring a APTA representative at Franklin County Commission meetings.
  • Working to assure fire and emergency protection for our area.
  • Supporting the purchase a new ladder fire truck and building a new fire station, near the corner of highway 98 and highway 370.

 We have an e-mail notification system to notify our members of issues and actions that we deem important and time sensitive.

Any interested person is welcome to attend our monthly Board meetings at 10:00 am on the second Saturday of each month at the Mission-by-the-Sea Church on Alligator Drive (Highway 370).
