NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ON PROPOSED BUDGET AND TAX LEVY
FOR FISCAL YEAR 2017
CITY OF GAUTIER, MISSISSIPPI
The City of Gautier will hold a public hearing on its proposed budget for FY 2017 on September 6, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers, located at 3330 Hwy 90, Gautier, Mississippi. This hearing is open to the public. All citizens are encouraged to attend for comment.
For FY 2017, the proposed budget has projected revenues of $9,151,443.00. Of that amount, 44.7% or $4,091,088 is proposed to be financed through a total ad valorem tax levy. The General Fund assessment will remain at 28.59 mills which includes a dedicated 1.8 Public Safety millage. The Library tax assessment will remain at one mill or $108,639. The Debt Service Fund assessment will remain at 8.11 mills. The Debt Service millage is used for repayment of Bond issues and general debt related to Public Safety Operations.
The decision not to increase the Ad Valorem tax millage rates for FY 2017 means you will not pay more in ad valorem taxes unless the assessed value of your property has increased for FY 2017.
