Presentation of the Budget for Fiscal Year 2020/2021
County Administrator Janice Gilley
- Mister Chairman, Commissioners, this is the second of two required Public Hearings for the Board to adopt the Fiscal Year 2020/2021 Budget.
At its first Public Hearing held September 8, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) adopted the Tentative Millage Rates and Budget for Fiscal Year 2020/2021. The law requires that prior to consideration of the Final Budget, an explanation of the “Rolled Back Rate” be provided and entered into the records. The “Rolled Back Rate” is a computed millage rate that would generate the same amount of ad valorem tax dollars as the prior Fiscal Year, based on the proposed year’s tax roll, excluding new construction.
The millage rates tentatively approved by the Board on September 8, 2020, are 6.6165 for the County-wide millage rate, .3590 for the Library Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU) and .6850 for the Sheriff’s Law Enforcement Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU). The aggregate of these millage rates proposed for Fiscal Year 2020/2021 is
the “Rolled Back Rate” certified by the Property Appraiser. This represents the percentage increase in property taxes tentatively adopted by the Board.
Staff has recommended one Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2020/2021 Tentative Budget. This Amendment for an increase of $14,924,264 is for recommended adjustments to the Tentative Budget.
The revised budget will result in a balanced unified budget for Fiscal Year 2020/2021 of $587,933,284, which is 16.07% more than the adopted Fiscal Year 2019/2020 Budget of $493,429,327.
Board discussion to approve the Community Partners funding at the current level discussed at the 1st Budget Public Hearing held on September 8, 2020.
