St. Petersburg, Florida -- Citizens Property Insurance policyholders in Senate District 22 who have questions for the company will have the opportunity to get them answered on Aug. 20.
In response to Senator Jeff Brandes request to give policyholders the chance to have their voices heard after Citizens applied to have rates increase for both commercial and residential properties, the company has scheduled "Office Hours" at Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber headquarters from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Earlier this week, the Office of Insurance Regulation scheduled a meeting to be held at the Tampa Convention Center the same day. That meeting will be held from 4-8 p.m.
Citizens policyholders who live in Senate District 22 (Tierra Verde, St. Pete Beach, South Pasadena, Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, St. Petersburg, Gulfport, Kenneth City and Tampa) and wish to schedule a time to meet with Citizens staff on Aug. 20, should contact Doug Izzo at Doug@TampaBayBeaches.com or call 727-360-6957.
Attendees must have an address within senate district. Once scheduled, policyholders should bring with them any documents that would aid in addressing their questions.
