Riviera Community Improvement Association
(RCIA) is a voluntary organization open to property owners and residents
in Riviera Beach. It derives its finances primarily from membership
dues, and to a lesser degree from other activities such as carnival
proceeds and boat ramp fees (keys). It receives no funding directly or
indirectly from tax revenue or any other obligatory fees.
RCIA serves as a caretaker organization for the
community property deeded to Riverbea. However, RCIA has no authority
beyond how its own money is spent for the betterment of the community.
Its board members and officers receive no monetary compensation.
In this respect RCIA represents only its members
and the will of its members.
RCIA members can participate in RCIA's general
meetings and can vote on how the organization's funds are spent,
appointment of board members and other activities initiated by the
organization. Non-RCIA members do not have this right.
However, RCIA also handles some issues that concern
all property owners in Riviera Beach, primarily the Shore Erosion
Budget. At meetings concerning these issues all property owners in
Riviera Beach can participate and vote. RCIA then simply serves as the
facilitator of these meetings, and has to make arrangements that all
property owners are notified, typically through a community-wide
