Posted by scott Should I buy a car through my limited company? By Scott Ferguson Thinking of buying a car through your limited company? At first this can seem like a great tax saving idea, but it is important to consider all of the associated costs and tax implications before deciding whether to invest.
This is in response to your request for an opinion on substantially the following question. Does a municipal police department have the duty or authority to enforce the provisions of Ch.
According to your letter, the Turkey Creek Planned Unit Development, which consists of single and multi-family dwellings, a golf course and a golf and racquet club, is located within the municipal boundaries of the City of Alachua.
All streets and boulevards located within the development are owned and maintained by the Turkey Creek Master Owners Association, Inc.
You state that although the roadways are private, the access road to the development is not blocked by a gate and the owners association does not preclude anyone from entering the development. In addition, as the golf and racquet club is open to the general public, those members of the public coming to the club have an express access easement as invitees of the club over the roadways located in the "community area.
You therefore inquire whether the police department of the City of Alachua may enforce the provisions of Ch. In providing for the enforcement of Ch. Whether this "right" exists in any given situation, however, is a mixed question of law and fact which this office cannot resolve.
This office has previously stated that the apparent intent of the Legislature was to make Ch. Thus it is the availability of the area for, and the right to, the general and common use thereof by the public which makes it a quasi-public area and provides authority for the public control thereon pursuant to s.
While you state that under the restrictive covenants of the development the general public has the right to travel on certain roads owned and maintained by the owners association within the development i. Nor can I conclusively state that the actions of the owners association in not blocking the access road to the development by a gate and in not affirmatively precluding any member of the public from entering the development, constitutes a grant to the public of the right to generally and commonly use the roads in question, especially in light of the terms of the recorded restrictive covenants which govern the ownership and rights of access and usage of the roads in question and which appear to limit access to the roads within the development.
Such a determination involves mixed questions of law and fact which this office cannot address; rather, such issues must be determined by the courts in an appropriate adversary proceeding initiated for that purpose.
If, however, the public in general is permitted to commonly use these privately owned and maintained roads and is given ready access to this development and thereby acquired a right to travel by motor vehicle on the roads therein, then the right of the motoring public may well be established and the municipal police department would be authorized pursuant to s.
If access to and common use of such roads is not generally available to the public, but is legally limited by the recorded restrictive covenants governing this development to those having express or implied permission from the owner, then the provisions of Ch.
I would note that in those areas in which the public does not have a right to travel by motor vehicle, the municipal police department has not been granted enforcement authority by s. Therefore, local authorities do not have either the right or the obligation or the authority to enforce the provisions of Ch.
It should be noted that the test for the expenditure of any public funds by a municipality or other governmental entity in this state is whether the expenditure in question is for a purpose which primarily benefits the public with any benefits to private interests being only secondary and incidental.
Port of Palm Beach District, So. City of Miami, So. This office has previously stated that a municipality is not authorized to expend public funds to repair privately owned roads or streets in which the municipality has no property right or interest and over which the public has no easement or right to use for roadway purposes or to travel as such an expenditure would contravene the provisions of s.
And see AGO stating that if the roads in question are not county roads, they cannot be maintained or repaired by the county or county funds expended therefor; moreover, county funds may be used to defray the costs of installation and maintenance of traffic control devices and signs only on roads which are county roads or are open to the motoring public.
The issue of whether a municipality may expend public funds to provide traffic enforcement on private roads is therefore dependent upon whether the public has a right to travel on such roads by motor vehicle.
Accordingly, I am of the opinion that the provisions of Ch. If access to and common use of roads on private property is not generally available to the public but is legally limited by recorded restrictive covenants to those having express or implied permission from the owner, then the provisions of Ch.
Whether the public has been granted a right to travel on private property by motor vehicle depends upon the circumstances in a given situation and involves mixed questions of law and fact which this office cannot resolve.Most cars stand idle most of the time.
