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

City Council is requested to consider the attached resolution setting the millage rate for the 2022 City Budget. This resolution conforms with the tentative millage rate set at your September 7, 2021 City Council meeting per Resolution 21-36.
