*There are some significant changes to the FY25 budget process, particularly concerning public hearings and notifications. Here’s a breakdown of the key points:

1. **Two Public Hearings**: The City must hold two public hearings on the proposed budget. One is specifically for the proposed property tax levy, and the other is for the budget adoption.

2. **Mailing from County Auditor**: The County Auditor will send out a mailing to all property owners within the county with information on their specific tax levy requests from the County, schools and cities. This mailing will include the dates, times, and locations of the public hearings.

3. **April 2, 2024**: Two meetings will be held on this date. The first, at 6:00 p.m., will be the proposed property tax levy public hearing. The second, at 7:00 p.m., will formally set the public hearing date for the budget adoption. If the first meeting runs past 7:00 p.m., the second meeting will begin after it concludes.

4. **Proposed Property Tax Levy Public Hearing, First Meeting at 6:00 p.m.**: This must be scheduled prior to the mailing from the County Auditor. It will focus solely on the proposed property tax levy and cannot include any other agenda items.

5. **Second Meeting**: This will occur at 7:00 p.m. where the public hearing date for the budget adoption will be set. This meeting cannot occur until after the proposed property tax levy public hearing is held.

6. **Publication Requirements**: Both public hearings must be published in the Opinion Tribune and on City of Glenwood websites and social media sites. This must occur no less than 10 days and no more than 20 days before the public hearing date.

7. **Online Streaming**: Both meetings will be streamed online through the normal GoToMeeting link.

These changes ensure transparency and public participation in the budget adoption process, allowing property owners to understand and provide input on tax levies.
