Welcome to the Summer of 2019!

Your Surf City Taxpayer Association (SCTA) is excited about all the events we have planned for this Summer!  Our Board continues to work on your behalf building a great Summer full of fun activities we hope you will participate in. See what we have planned below!



We have had years of fun events sponsored by the Taxpayer Association.

One of the coolest and most popular events of the summer! Prizes for kids, teens, adults and groups – Winners can take home a trophy!


Foul Shooting Contest 

Girls and boys through age 18 have the chance to show their skills and compete for cool prizes. Mini Hoops for ages 6 and younger!


Mini Golf Tournaments 

Family and friends play together and compete individually for cash prizes in children, teen and adult age groups.


Meet The Mayor Meeting 

Each year, we offer a one-time chance to meet and hear from our Mayor, the Honorable Francis Hodgson.  Francis Hodgson has been mayor since January 6th, 2016, after being a member of the Surf City Council for more than four decades. During this meeting you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions (and hear the questions and concerns of your neighbors and fellow taxpayers). The Mayor will address issues that have recently been raised by citizens and businesses. ?
