Kriseman proposes to reduce millage rate
July 14, 2021 - St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman is proposing to reduce the city's millage rate to 6.65 for the fiscal year 2022. The current millage rate is 6.75. "It's a modest reduction but it is in keeping with our values and will not compromise our other priorities and investments," Kriseman wrote on Twitter. "Delivering quality city services while ensuring fiscal stewardship and responsibility is a value of our Administration, and I am proud of what we accomplished. We've decreased our millage rate and increased our stability fund and reserves while continuing to move St. Pete and our people forward."
