Local Government Financial Reporting

Chapter 2019-56, Laws of Florida, requires each county and municipal budget officer to submit certain information regarding the local government's final budget and economic status by October 15th of each year. This is the first year of data submissions, and preliminary information is now available for all counties and most municipalities.

Using the data submitted by local governments, EDR calculated the following six statutorily-required metrics.

  • Government spending per resident, including the rate for the five preceding fiscal years;
  • Government debt per resident, including the rate for the five preceding fiscal years;
  • Median income within the county or municipality;
  • Average county or municipal employee salary;
  • Percent of the entity's budget spent on salaries and benefits for the entity's employees; and
  • Number of special taxing districts that are located October 15th of each year wholly or partially within the county or municipality.

These files will be updated as additional responses are received.

 

Any local officials that still need to complete and submit the County or Municipal Reporting Form can find the appropriate form, instructions, and supporting documentation via the following link.
