The city of Weeki Wachee has been dissolved. Hernando County will oversee the area.

HERNANDO COUNTY  – Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday (June 9) signed House Bill 1215 to abolish the city of Weeki Wachee local government.

All assets and legitimate liabilities, including substantiated debts, have been transferred to Hernando County.

As part of this bill, the city of Weeki Wachee will become part of the unincorporated area of Hernando County. The rate on the tax bills for the properties within the city limits of Weeki Wachee, which has fewer than 15 properties, will be removed.

Weeki Wachee State Park, operated by the Florida State Park System, will remain in operation including its live mermaid show. Weeki Wachee will remain the city of Live Mermaids, a world-renowned tourist attraction, without the local government organization.

Additionally, HB 1215 will not affect the addresses of any properties inside or outside of the city of Weeki Wachee limits.
