Hard work rewarded. As your hard work should be rewarded by making sure that your government does not take money from you it does not (or should not) need. I fought hard and obtained the votes this year to reduce our property tax millage rate to its lowest rate ever (tax relief failed last year on a 2-3 vote - Tim Schaffer & Eugene Flinn voting last year to to reduce taxes in a non-election year).
I am pleased to sign the budget ordinances regarding the Village Council adopted FY 2016-17 Operating & Capital Budget. We approved the lowest millage rate in Village history. Residents should see a decrease in their municipal tax bill with the new millage rate of 2.3292 mills. The new fiscal year starts on October 1, 2016. Copies of the adopted budget will soon be available online.
We are working hard here as a team - along with our Charter officers including our Manager Edward Silva, Village Attorney Dexter Lehtinen and Interim Village Clerk Missy Arocha.
Providing quality services here in Palmetto Bay AND reducing the property tax mileage rate; it's YOUR money.
