HEARING REQUIRED:  Public

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The TRIM law requires conformance with exacting procedures in order to lawfully adopt millage levies and budgets.  We recommend that there be strict adherence to the following procedure established by the TRIM law.

 

The adoption of the City’s final budget beginning October 1, 2019 must take place after the adoption of the final millage rate resolution.   

 

The general public must be permitted to speak and ask questions prior to adoption of any measures by the City.  In addition, if there are any amendments by City Council, a motion to amend should be made before each resolution is adopted. By Florida Statutes Section 166.241 (2), a balanced budget is required to be adopted each fiscal year; therefore, any amendments brought forth for consideration must be balanced.

 

Although it will be necessary under the TRIM law to adopt the final millage rates and budgets at the second public hearing, the City Council may make subsequent budget amendments at any time during the fiscal year.

 

PRIOR ACTION:                     

 

September 11, 2019 - City Council adopted Budget Resolution No. 2019-46 adopting a tentative budget for the City of Pensacola for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2019.

 

FUNDING:

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

                     

Adoption of Budget Resolution no. 2019-50 will provide for a balanced budget as mandated in Florida Statute 166.241 and will ensure the City of Pensacola’s compliance under the TRIM law.
