Item No:                    5D.


Meeting Date:           February 25, 2013


From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Interim City Manager


Subject:                      Budget Calendar for Fiscal Year 2013-14



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends City Commission approval of the budget calendar for fiscal year 2013-14, which includes dates for the commission workshop meetings.



The first step in the budget process is to establish a calendar for fiscal year 2013-14.  By law, the City is allowed 45 days from July 1st or the date the Property Appraiser notifies the City Commission of the certified taxable values for 2013, whichever is later, to certify to following:

1)      the proposed millage rate for 2013,

2)      rolled back millage rate for 2013, and

3)      the date, time, and place of the public hearing to consider the proposed millage rate and tentative budget.


Since the City may not hold a public hearing on the same date as Lake County or the Lake County School Board, staff has tentatively scheduled the first public hearing for September 12, 2013.


As indicated on the attached calendar, the budget work sessions, subject to approval and/or modification by the Commission are scheduled as follows:


February 28th-  Budget Workshop/Kickoff Meeting

April 29th-        Budget Workshop/Preliminary FY 13-14 Budget Information

July-                15th, 23rd, 25th and 29th, budget/capital improvement plan workshops

            July 22nd -         establish the 2013 millage rate

            August 1st -      budget/capital improvement plan workshop



1.  Approve the budget calendar, as presented, or

2.  Approve the calendar as modified by the commission
