During a public hearing on Monday, the BOCC adopted a tentative millage rate and budget for the coming fiscal year.

The final budget hearing will be at 5:01 p.m. ET on Monday, Sept. 24 in the BOCC meeting room.

The millage rate set Monday was 6.0553 (minus Municipal Services Tax Units for beach renourishment), which represents a cut of taxes of 7.74 percent. The rollback rate, that which would bring in the same amount of ad valorem revenue as this year, was 6.5631.

A mil represents $1 for every $1,000 in taxable property value.

The gulf-front MSTU millage is 6.6693, down more than 3 percent and the interior gulf MSTU millage is 3.5014, a decrease of less than one percent. The local bond on the beach renourishment will be paid off this fiscal year.

Commissioners also amended an earlier motion to match dollar for dollar the city of Port St. Joe’s contribution to the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development Council.

The county and city will each pay $20,000 to the agency.
