The fiscal winnings of record year for tourism in Sarasota County will be slightly muted by a landmark budget debate in Congress.
The county must cover a roughly $92,000 budget shortfall for the 2013 fiscal year due to the automatic cuts in federal spending — or the sequestration. Nearly $40,000 will come from tourist development taxes, according to an email from Chief Financial Planning Director Steve Botelho to County commissioners.
The county must allocate $39,887 to replace federal subsidies on bonds out of the fund, which short-term rental properties fund through levies. Revenues from utility system funds will cover the remaining deficit.
