A Message From Mayor Dan Burris

Each spring it is the Mayor’s responsibility to draft a budget to present to the Town Council and then to the public at a Public Hearing prior to its adoption. This budget includes several different funds. The General Fund, which includes normal administrative functions of government, the Enterprise Fund which is intended to be self-sustaining so that we provide water, sewer and trash service with rates set to cover the actual costs of the services, and the Capital Project Fund, which includes funds for major capital projects.

The Town Council adopted the budget and set the Fiscal Year 2014 tax rate at the constant yield rate of .1266 at their June 10th public meeting. This budget kept the same number of personnel with the exception of the Event Coordinator position being made a full time position instead of a part time position. The number of community events hosted in the Town along with the important recent designation of the Town as an Arts and Entertainment District dictated that this position become a full time position. The Council continued to dedicate a significant investment in Public Works such as roads, storm drains and sidewalk improvements. The Capital Fund included matching funding for a grant to complete the Port of Leonardtown Park improvements. The Town continues to seek out grant funding to help offset significant investment in our facilities. Partnerships remain an important source to leverage our investments in the future of the Town. We continue to be strong economically and maintain a bright outlook for the future of Leonardtown and its citizens.

Dan Burris, Mayor
