Hi Skylar: As others mentioned...yes, taxes, Boca has their own police dept.....However, there are many benefits living within the City of Boca Raton. One being there is a first time home buyers program available for first time buyers or if you have not owned for 3 years. I have been working with the City and their program for several years. If you live in the City you will have access to their dog parks (obtain a permit from the City) and then regarding their beach parks....you pay once to enter and then take your receipt to the City and they will issue you a pass that will allow you access at no charge for the year. Also, closer you are to the Ocean....higher property values. If you live within the City of Boca Raton everything is minutes away, fine dining, shopping, ocean, entertainment , A Rated Schools etc..... I have lived in South Florida for 32 years and have lived in several cities but Boca has it all.
If there is anything else I can help you with please do not hesitate to contact me.
