Can someone give us an idea of what municipal water and sewer, basic cable, lawn maintenance, and electricity cost in places like Venice and North Port? Let's say, for a 1500 sq. ft. home on a quarter acre of land, no pool. Thank you for any input!

We currently pay:

1. About $30 per month for water. We live in North Port, our home is 1600 square feet. We are on city water but also septic. Most of NP is on well and septic. South Venice is also well and septic. Most of City of Venice, Venice Gardens, and the newer sections of Venice are city water and sewer. We also do not have an irrigation system. If you have city water and city sewer expect to pay about $100 per month. If you have a well for water you don't get a bill, but have to add salt on a monthly basis.
2. Cable - as a new customer you should be able to get one of those $99 per month bundles for cable-internet-phone. Just for basic cable you are looking in the $30 range, I think.
3. Lawn maintenance - we pay $60 per month. In the winter months, without a sprinkler system, we usually need just 1 cut a month for $20.
4. Electricity - we pay about $200 per month. If you have a newer more efficient AC unit you'll pay less.

Venice and North Port are both in Sarasota County.

Here is the calculator for Sarasota County for utilities: Residential Block Rate Bill Calculator

Here is the link for FPL (Florida Power and Light) for estimating your bill: FPL | Rates and Your Bill

Lawn maintenance varies by company - if you get someone that already does some of the homes in your neighborhood, they sometimes give discounts.

Cable Varies depending on what package deal you get and what company you use.

Here are some other contacts that might be helpful:

I've been told that if NP decides to extend their water and sewer lines in the near future, homeowners would be responsible to pay for this, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. True?

You would have to check with the city of North Port on that. Charlotte County is putting in sewer lines in certain areas such as Spring Lake. Here is what their fees will be just to give you an idea: http://www.charlottefl.com/outreach/...tionLetter.pdf
