Tuesday at 6 PM

Here's the process.  The Commission will meet Tuesday Sept 17  at 6 PM at Treasure Island Elementary School.   This is the first of two budget meetings.  

At this meeting, they will review the proposed budget, set the millage rate and decide on what line items to fund.  This is the public's chance for input.  Really our only chance.  

After the meeting, the village staff will rework the budget and present the final on  Thursday September 25, again at 6 PM to adopt the final budget.  

While the tax rates are not set in stone, it's likely that to maintain the current level of spending, our millage tax rate will rise from 4.7772 to 6.2 or 6.3.   That's a 31% increase in our taxes.  

This Tuesday will be  the last chance to find out why we are spending 31% more for the same services.
