Tentative city millage to be set Monday


400-MARK-LITZINGERWhen the St Augustine City Commission convenes Monday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., Historic City News reporters and commissioners will receive a pre-budget briefing from City Comptroller Mark Litzinger, and members will have the opportunity to establish the Fiscal 2013-2014 tentative millage rate.

At the regular business meeting that follows at 5:00 p.m., Resolution 2013-24 will be introduced; setting the proposed millage rate, developed during the workshop, for the purpose of sending TRIM notices.

The Resolution also establishes the date and time for the first public budget hearing; which will be held on September 5, at 5:05 p.m.

If you plan to attend, the City Commission Meeting will be held on Monday, July 22, 2013, beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Alcazar Room of the City Hall Building located at 75 King Street in St Augustine. You can watch the meeting live on Comcast Government Television channel 3. New safety measures will require attendees to empty the contents of their pockets, subject their bags to search, and submit to an electronic frisk performed by uniformed police using handheld wands upon entry, or re-entry, to the meeting room. Allow sufficient additional time to accomplish this new safety measure.
