Welcome to the Lake Asbury Municipal Service Benefit District Website

This website belongs to Lake Asbury Municipal Service Benefit District (LAMSBD), a Florida Special District with taxing authority over all lake lot property on Lake Asbury, South Lake Asbury & Lake Ryan as defined by the Charter.


Our mission is to maintain the lakes and dams per the Charter for the benefit and enjoyment of the lake residents.

ALLIGATORS: It is the time of year when alligators are on the move and may be seen

in our lakes. They normally come and go, as they search for mates. District

residents have asked the LAMSBD board how to stop alligators from entering the

lakes. The Curator of the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, Ms. Gen Anderson, says that

the only way to stop them from getting in is to erect sturdy fencing around the

entire lake. Even that may not be enough because alligators are good climbers and

can also dig underneath fences.

Remember that in Florida, it is illegal to kill or harass alligators; alligators may only

be harvested under special licenses and permits issued by the Florida Fish and

Wildlife Conservation Commission. If you have a nuisance alligator in your area, you

can call the Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) 866-FWC-GATOR (866-

392-4286). SNAP does not consider an alligator a nuisance unless it is over eight

feet long or it is showing aggressive behavior.

Mowing of the dams will resume soon.

Nutria have been spotted on the lakes. Nutria are large, semi-aquatic rodents,

native the South America. The impact of Nutria on our lakes will be addressed in


upcoming LAMSBD meetings.
