Commissioners approved the No New Revenue rate of $.049776, which includes $.036487 for maintenance and operations and $.013289 for I&S (debt service).
Harbor Master Keith Barrett noted the budget was very concise, but warned decreasing income and/or increased maintenance expenses could affect the budget, depending on the COVID-19 situation.
Commissioner Judy Vlasek said she is glad the district could get the tax rate under a nickel again.
The current tax rate is $.052008.
