The Town Commission reviewed the preliminary budget with Finance Director Tom Kelley and Town Manager Brice St. Denis at a budget workshop Tuesday, June 8, at Town Hall.
Although some commissioners noted they had several questions for town staff, for now, the commission agreed to accept the preliminary budget for further review and discuss it again at the commission’s regular workshop at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 17.
St. Denis proposes a 13.6% millage increase and recommends the town consider raising the millage rate from 1.5 mills to 1.7042 mills.
For more information about what the town manager is recommending and how it affects taxpayers, pick up a copy of the Thursday, June 10, edition of The Longboat Observer.
