35. Ad Valorem Millage Resolution
Ad Valorem Millage Resolution - 2022-01.pdf

Ms. Campbell thanked constituents for reaching out to her who are participating in the process and providing input.  She publicly clarified that it is not the Board who votes to approve the millage, it is the community. She wants the public to understand that when they are making this decision, accurate information should be sought. Ms. Campbell then provided an example of the assessment increase should a millage be approved.  She also explained how tax rates are established and discussed our budget/challenges.

Ms. Jenkins reiterated sentiments made by Ms. Campbell and further expanded on BPS' compensation challenges.  She agrees that the public needs to be aware that it is not the Board's decision. Ms. Jenkins provided examples of innovative ways these additional funds could be spent to benefit our students.

Ms. Belford thanked Ms. Campbell for her thorough discussion.  She further explained how the tax dollars are distributed to districts and the limitations set by Tallahassee on how they can be spent.  Ms. Belford also discussed the disparities between other counties throughout Florida.  She echoed that the Board is not making this decision but is giving the community the opportunity to voice their opinions and vote to approve the millage. Ms. Belford noted the issues the district is currently experiencing pertaining to compensation compression.

Ms. McDougall reiterated that it is up to the community to move this forward.

Motion
Approve the attached resolution.
