DUNEDIN – City commissioners tentatively adopted a $166 million budget Sept. 21 and a tax rate of 4.13 mills.

The tax rate is equivalent of $4.13 per $1,000 of assessed property value. It is the same rate that was adopted for fiscal years 2016 and 2017.

Commissioners will hold a final public hearing on the budget and tax rate Thursday, Oct. 5, 6 p.m.

City Manager Jennifer Bramley said the budget includes the addition of three full-time staff members. Three City Commission workshops were held on budget.

“I think it was a good process. I think it is a well-vetted budget,” Commissioner Moe Freaney said.

She spoke positively about the new positions that were added, such as a planner.

“It makes good sense to have a planner. We have a lot of transportation issues,” Freaney said.

The budget calls for a new position in communication. She said the commissioners hear the need to have communication often from the citizens.

“We can’t communicate enough,” Freaney said.

The other position is for an additional firefighter.

Mayor Julie Ward Bujalski said commissioners spent a number of workshops and meetings talking about the budget.

“I’m excited that we have got these three new positions,” she said. “There are still positions that are much needed. I absolutely know that parks need people. We have more parkland, and we can’t keep up with it.”

The 2018 fiscal year budget takes effect Oct. 1.
