Sanibel Budget Talks

Sanibel City Council members are working on the budget for the next fiscal year.  The millage rate has been set at 2.1398 which would generate almost $9 million in taxes despite the lower property values.  Sanibel has always managed to live within its means, but Council is still looking at other ways to cut expenses. There was much discussion over the need and amount for reserves.  The first public hearing on the proposed budget will be Saturday, September 8.  This is your chance to have your say!
