On September 12, 2013, the Lee County Mosquito Control District Board of Commissioners voted to adopt a millage rate of 0.252 mills per 1000. This millage rate is a 12.3% increase over the current year aggregate rolled-back rate of 0.2244 mills per 1000.

The District has kept millage the last several years at rates that were not sufficient to generate enough revenue to cover expenses while drawing down reserves. The millage rate must be raised in order to maintain sufficient reserves and generate adequate income to cover the actual cost of mosquito control moving forward.

On September 12, 2013, The Lee County Mosquito Control District Board of Commissioners adopted the proposed budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. For a copy of the adopted budget click here.
