A Florida public official bond is a fiduciary surety bond that is sometimes required of elected or non-elected local or state officials.
The surety bond serves as a financial guarantee that the public official will abide by all rules, statutes, and laws in the performance of their professional duties.
This fiduciary bond, furthermore, allows the city, town, county, state or municipality to recoup any losses up to the bond’s face amount for the failure of a public official to act in accordance with their obligations.
Statutes which govern Florida public officers obtaining a surety bond can be found under Chapter 113 of the Florida Statutes.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds provides the Florida public official bond which can be prepaid for a period of up to 4 years at a very reasonable price.
