City of St Augustine budget workshop

In September, Historic City News readers will have their first opportunity to comment during public hearings, however, an informal workshop was held this morning in order for commissioners to review the proposed 2012-2013 budget for the City of St Augustine.

Even though the public may attend and observe a workshop, votes that would be binding on the city cannot be taken. That time will come after public hearings scheduled for September 6 and September 20.

Those public hearings will be held in The Alcazar Room of City Hall, located at 75 King Street in St Augustine, and will commence at 5:05 p.m.

The 2012-2013 budget goes into effect with the start of the new fiscal year on October 1.

In preparation for today’s workshop, staff prepared a workbook for commissioners with a budget summary of each of the funds on which the city relies for operations. Additional budget information was made available to the Commission with a staff developed presentation.
