The order of business and content of this first public hearing on the Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) Budget are mandated by Florida Statutes, specifically Florida Statutes (F.S.) Section 200.065.  At this hearing, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) is asked to adopt resolutions that approve tentative millage rates and budgets for the various entities for which the Board is the taxing authority.

Adoption of the attached resolutions provides the FY23 Proposed millage rates within the statutory requirements.  Final approval of the millage rates and budgets will occur at the final public hearing on September 22, 2022, which must be noticed by prescribed advertisements in a newspaper of general circulation in the community.


Background Information:

On July 19, 2022, the County Administrator delivered the FY23 Proposed (Tentative) Budget to the Board.  The proposed ad valorem millage rates were then certified to the Property Appraiser on August 2, 2022, for inclusion in the Truth in Millage (TRIM) Notices.  The TRIM notice sets the tentative millage rates, which are the maximum millage rates.  These notices, which were mailed to all county property taxpayers on August 22, 2022, also contained the notice of the time and place of this public hearing.
Subsequent to the presentation of the FY23 Proposed budgets by the County Budget Officer in accordance with F.S. Section 129.03, revisions were made to the tentative budgets to reflect decisions by the Board, updated information, and technical corrections.  A summary of these revisions was distributed to the Board along with revised tentative budget pages.  The Summary of Changes to the FY23 Proposed Budget is attached and the changes have been incorporated in the tentative budget resolutions.


Fiscal Impact:

Tentative approval of the FY23 millage rates and budgets for Countywide, Municipal Services Taxing Units, and other taxing districts is required to comply with Florida Statutes.


Staff Member Responsible:

Chris Rose, Director, Office of Management and Budget
