Bradenton Beach goes back to budget

Bradenton Beach will hold another hearing on its 2009-10 budget despite having passed the spending plan and setting the millage rate in September.

The meeting will take place at city hall, 107 Gulf Drive N., at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26.

“Due to a misunderstanding on my part as far as advertisements and a technicality on the order of resolutions, it is going to be necessary to re-advertise the budget and have another hearing to read the resolutions,” city clerk Nora Idso informed Mayor Michael Pierce and city commissioners in a memo Oct. 12.

There were multiple resolutions approved Sept. 23, when the commission set the millage rate at 2.1539 mils and adopted a 2,795,096 budget for the new fiscal year, which began Oct. 1.

Idso said there was a problem with the numbering of the resolutions, which, if not corrected, could interfere with the city’s receipt of state revenue sharing dollars.
