Approve the recommended Penny for Pinellas project list, as revised for fiscal years 2023/24 through 2029/30.

 

Body

SUMMARY: 

On March 6, 1997, the City Council adopted Ordinance 6137-97. The ordinance established the requirement for a special hearing prior to adoption of the capital improvement budget to discuss the use of Penny for Pinellas tax, and at any time in which there is any proposed change to the Penny for Pinellas project funding of $500,000 or more.

Changes to Penny for Pinellas projects that meet these criteria in the proposed 2023/24 capital improvement budget and six-year plan include the following:

Fire Engines/Ladder Truck Replacement - The funding for this project is being increased by a total of $1,843,990. This represents cost increases estimated at $443,990 for fire engines planned for purchase in fiscal years 2027/28 through 2029/30; and the addition of a ladder truck budgeted for $1,400,000 planned for replacement in 2029/30 (funded at $700,000 in fiscal years 2028/29 and 2029/30).
