At this hearing, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) will consider adoption of resolutions that approve final millage rates and budgets for the various entities for which the Board is the taxing authority. The order of business and content of this Public Hearing on the FY19 Budget are mandated by Florida Statutes.


Background Information:

On July 17, 2018, the County Administrator delivered the FY19 Proposed (Tentative) Budget to the Board.  The proposed ad valorem millage rates were then certified to the Property Appraiser on August 3, 2018 for inclusion in the Truth in Millage (TRIM) Notices.  The TRIM notice sets the tentative millage rates, which are the maximum millage rates.  TRIM notices were mailed to all county property taxpayers on August 20, 2018, and also contained the notice of the time and place of the first public hearing held on September 13, 2018.

Notice for the second and final Public Hearing was published in the Tampa Bay Times on September 21, 2018 in accordance with Florida Statutes Section 200.065.


Fiscal Impact:

Final approval of the FY19 millage rates and budgets for County-wide, Municipal Services Taxing Units, and other taxing districts is required to comply with Florida Statutes. This will conclude the process of approving appropriations for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2018.
