Destin City Council Sets Budget Hearing Dates and Tentative Millage Rate

The Destin City Council has set its FY18 budget hearing dates for Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, at 6 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, at 6 p.m. The annual budget workshop is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 14, 2017, at 5:30 p.m. All meetings will take place in the council chambers at 4100 Indian Bayou Trail. The public is invited and encouraged to take part in the city’s budget process.

The council set the city’s tentative millage rate for FY18 at 1.615 mills, which is the same rate as FY17. A rollback rate of 1.5615 mills was also confirmed in the council’s adopted motion, which would provide the city with the same amount of ad valorem revenue in FY18 as in FY17. The city saw a growth in property values last year of 4.84 percent.
