PSJ finalizes budget

Published: Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 12:16 PM.

The Port St. Joe City Commission put the final touches on the 2013-14 fiscal year budget during the final public hearing on Monday.

The city, in a sense, stayed relatively in place.

For the third consecutive year commissioners set a tentative millage rate one mill higher than the current millage to provide flexibility in planning, all the while pledging to return to the beginning.

With Monday’s unanimous vote commissioners did just that, approving a budget that barely budges and a millage rate, 3.5914 mills.

A mill is equal to $1 per $1,000 worth of tangible taxable property.

The city of Port St. Joe levies the lowest millage in the county.

The millage does come with an ever-so slight tax increase.
