Resolution Adopting the Tentative FY2022 Millage Rate - City of Marco Island

City Council is requested to consider the attached resolution setting the tentative millage rate for the 2022 City Budget. This resolution conforms with the discussions at your July 19, 2021 City Council meeting with respect to the tentative millage per Resolution 21-28.
