AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   July 25, 2011

 

FROM:                       Jerry Boop, Finance Director, CPA, CGFO

 

SUBJECT:                  Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute and submit the Certification of Taxable Value for Fiscal Year 2011-12 to the

                                    Lake County Property Appraiser

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends authorizing the City Manager to execute and submit the Certification of Taxable Value for Fiscal Year 2011-12 to the Lake County Property Appraiser, establishing the tentative operating millage at 4.3179 mills.

 

Analysis:

Under current TRIM guidelines, (s. 200.065 F.S.), once established, the tentative operating millage rate may be decreased at final adoption but it cannot be increased.  The 2011-12 proposed budgets reflect the prior year operating millage rate of 4.3179 mills.

 

 

Options:

  1. By a majority vote, the Commission may authorize the City Manager to execute and submit the Certification of Taxable Value, reflecting the proposed operating millage rate of 4.3179 mills per $1,000, the Tax Increment Adjustment Worksheet and the Maximum Millage Levy Calculation Preliminary Disclosure for Fiscal Year 2011-12 to the Lake County Property Appraiser; ($1,152,928,547 X .0043179 = $4,978,230 X 95% - $4,729,319);or

 

  1. Any such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

 

 

Fiscal Impact

 

Adoption of the previous year’s millage rate will result in Ad Valorem Revenue of $4,729,319 a reduction of $413,795 or 8% from the previous year’s revenue of $5,143,114.
