It was an eventful year, and The Apopka Voice was there every step of the way to provide you with the news and analysis you needed on the important issues facing Apopka residents.

This week, we will review the news year that was 2021. Some of the stories were one-day events, while many others were ongoing throughout the year. But instead of simply re-publishing the story, we'll go a little deeper and provide all of the articles related to that issue so that you better understand the impact they had on Apopka, and how they will evolve heading into 2022.

The sixth part of the series features articles written about the debate over the budget and millage rate during the budget workshops and hearings.

We hope you enjoy the look back.

City Council debates the budget and millage rate

The City of Apopka's budget for fiscal year 2021-22 is a grueling process that started in March, then through three days of workshops in July, two hearings and two votes in September and culminated in the adoption of a budget on October 1st. A budget guides a city's spending for the coming year. It is a fiscal roadmap for a municipality, and it can tell you a lot about the leaders who enact it. Here are some of the articles we published about that process.
