FY 2016 Proposed Budget Presentation – On July 21, 2015 at 1:30 PM, as part of their regular agenda, the County Commission heard a Fiscal Year 2016 Recommended County Budget Presentation. Please view the Fiscal Year 2016 Recommended County Budget Workbook.
The annual County budget process requires a number of steps, ranging from its preparation through adoption. Florida Statutes specify that a tentative balanced County budget must be submitted to the County Commission as the next step in the budget process.
At this point in time, the FY 2016 Recommended County Budget has been balanced with expenditures and adequate reserves within each County fund equal to projected fund revenues. County Administration believes the Recommended County Budget represents a funding level that can reasonably assure the achievement of St. Johns County’s operational needs while minimizing the tax impact on its citizenry.
A follow-up County Commission workshop on the FY 2016 Recommended County Budget will be scheduled tentatively for July 28, 2015. At that time, following the workshop, County Commission will be asked to set the tentative FY 2016 County millage rates in order to accomplish the required mailing of notices of proposed property taxes.
The Financial Plan, Budget in Brief and Capital Improvement Plan are prepared annually by the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) of the Board of County Commissioners. These reports present the annual budget for the County at October 1st of each year. St. Johns County has been awarded a Distinguished Budget Presentation award for fourteen consecutive years.
