FY2019 CDD Neighborhood Assessments

FY2020 Budget Process

The budgets adopted by the Districts and the IDA are individual plans of operations for the upcoming fiscal year (FY).  The fiscal year for the Districts and the IDA run October 1st to the following September 30th.  The annual budgets determine the quality and quantity of governmental services.  In addition to being a financial plan, the budgets also establish a level of accountability, control, and usage of public resources.

The budgets bring together a detailed explanation of anticipated revenues, identified by source, which will be used to finance District and IDA operations throughout the year.  The budget then identifies how these revenues will be used during the fiscal year by Department.  Therefore, the budgets as adopted should clearly illuminate to the residents of Lakewood Ranch Phase I, a clear and concise summary of the services to be rendered, how these services will be financed, and what the cost of these services will be by Department.

The FY2020 Budget Request forms are due no later than January 30, 2019.
