07-21-2015 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #12


Title
Advertisement of the 2015-16 Proposed Tentative Budget

Discussion
There is a legal requirement for the District to advertise the 2015-16 Proposed Tentative Budget and the proposed millage levies in the local newspaper. The attached items relating to the total budget and proposed millage levies are to be used for reference purposes only and will be updated and finalized prior to the advertisement of the first public hearing, which will be in the Florida Today on Saturday, July 25th. The millage rate listed in the second paragraph of the Notice of Tax for School Capital Outlay will also be updated to reflect information not yet available from the State. It is anticipated that both of the attachments will be updated by the July 21st School Board meeting. The estimated cost associated with this item is the required newspaper advertisement fee. At this time, we believe that the District requirements are 2 one-quarter page, and 1 one-half page ads.

Recommendation
Authorize the Superintendent to advertise the 2015-16 Proposed Tentative Budget and millage rates along with the capital projects to be funded from the 1.5 mill proceeds, which will be presented at the public hearing to be held Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. at the Educational Services Facility.
