Budget Viewing and Public Budget Hearings

Where can I find a copy of the budget?

The proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year is available for viewing during the last two weeks of July, and the months of August and September. The document is available at City Hall in the City Clerk’s Office and the Office of Management and Budget. A copy of the document is also available for viewing at the Lee County libraries in Cape Coral.

The entire approved budget is available for viewing on or about December 1 of this fiscal year at the locations listed above and is also available online.

When and where are the public budget hearings?

State law requires that two public hearings be held to discuss the budget. These hearings occur every September. The first public hearing date is advertised on the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM Notice) and the second is published not less than two days prior to the hearing in the local newspapers.
