Fiscal Year 2000-2001
A proposed Public Safety Budget of $34,104,882 was submitted to Monroe County June 1st, 2000. This reflects a $2,432,157 increase over our currently approved budget for fiscal year 1999-2000. This increase is due to a requested salary increase of 3% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) in the amount of $612,097 and a 3% Merit increase in the amount of $612,097 along with associated taxes and retirement contributions (Comparison Study of Starting Salaries for Deputies and Annual Rent in 30 Florida Counties). This also includes nine new deputy positions for the Village of Islamorada at a personnel cost of $534,947. In addition, an increase of $500,411 in operating expenses is requested. This request is made up primarily of a mandated increase in our medical service contract totaling $37,100, supply costs for the Village of Islamorada of $78,526, increased fuel costs of $166,500 and other medical programs for inmates totaling $141,600. Also included is an increase in capital outlay totaling $241,605. This is for replacement of 25 road patrol vehicle and 6 vans, and replacement of security equipment at the jail facility.
