Suwannee River Water Management District approves tentative budget, millage rate for 2014

Live Oak —

The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) Governing Board has approved the Tentative Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 budget of $24.5 million. The Governing Board also approved a millage rate of 0.4143, which is the same as last year. 

Under the proposed millage rate those who own property with a taxable value of $100,000 will pay $41.43 in property taxes to the District.

The tentative budget will enable the District to protect water resources for the benefit of our citizens and natural system. Taxes paid to the District contribute to numerous public services such as protecting springs and rivers, water supply planning, and water resource development. Springs projects and programs represent roughly 42 percent of the budget.

The District will hold two public hearings - Sept 9, and Sept 23, before the budget and millage rate will be adopted. Both meetings will begin at 5:05 p.m. at the District headquarters in Live Oak. The final budget and millage rate will be adopted at the Sept 23, hearing.

The public is encouraged to attend. For more information please call 386.362.1001 or 800.226.1066
