Eric Zwayer - As the elected Tax Collector, my goal for our organization is to be the main point of government services in Highlands County, while providing excellent customer service to every person that walks through our doors. Over the past seven years, our office has added Driver’s Licenses, Birth Certificates, Sun Passes, Concealed Weapons Licenses, Tourist Development Tax, and Notary Services. All of this while continuing to provide excellent customer service in the area of Property Tax, Registration and Titles, Hunting and Fishing Licenses, Dealer Services, Parking Permits, and Garage Sale Permits. It is a huge undertaking to effectively hire, train, and retain quality staff who are capable of the cross training that are required for our operations. I will discuss the operations of our office, the trends that we have seen, and vision I have for the office moving forward. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with everyone.
