MINUTES OF THE BEACON MEADOWS SPECIAL DEPENDENT DISTRICT
PUBLIC BUDGET HEARING
The public budget hearing for the Beacon Meadows Special Dependent District was convened by President McCrorey at 7:30 p.m. on June 14, 2022 at the Northdale Recreation Center, 15510 Hooting Owls Place, Tampa, Florida.
Trustees present: Wendy McCrorey, Dena Galyardt, Barbara Appel, Penny Phillips, Allen McCrorey, Angela Lucero, Anne Blevins
Trustees absent: None
Public present: None
President McCrorey called the hearing to order at 7:30 p.m. and presented the budget for discussion, comparing estimates for FY22 with projections for FY23.
The proposed budget for FY23 includes the special assessment rate of $125 per improved residential property. There are 256 single family homes in Beacon Meadows, resulting in projected revenue of $32,000. This amount, minus the required 5% ($1,600), plus $45,929 estimated beginning fund balance (i.e., budget carryover), equals total revenues of $76,329.
President McCrorey reviewed all budget categories and the backup schedules justifying how projected items are calculated.
Budget Transfers (99.01) is the standard amount that has been allocated for a number of years. In the past, the District’s accountant had confirmed this entry was appropriate. Reserve for Contingency (99.03), which can be up to 10% of total revenues, is the amount that is estimated to cover three months of regular District expenses.
President McCrorey reported that the proposed budget was posted on the District’s website on May 25, 2022, in compliance with Chapter 189.418(4) of the Florida Statutes. The approved budget will be posted on the same website.
Comments from Trustee Blevins and Trustee Appel resulted in adjustments to the documents for Repair and Maintenance (46.00) and Reserve for Contingency (99.03). Then discussion among Trustees resulted in an agreement that the budget projections for FY23 appeared reasonable and that the special assessment rate should remain at $125 per improved residential property. Since no members of the public were present, President McCrorey did not open the hearing for public comment.
The resolution fixing the special assessment rate for the year 2022 was read. Trustee Appel made a motion, seconded by Trustee Blevins, to approve the budget, adopt the resolution, and set the special assessment rate at $125. The motion was approved by a unanimous affirmative vote of 7-0.
There being no further business, Trustee Blevins moved to adjourn the hearing. Trustee Phillips seconded the motion. The motion was approved by a unanimous affirmative vote of 7-0. The hearing was adjourned by President McCrorey at 7:48 p.m.
