The LMCD budget is designed to focus resources in the areas that will best meet the organization’s Strategic Plan. The LMCD mission is to protect and enhance the “Lake Minnetonka experience.” Per Minnesota Statute 103B.635, the LMCD must adopt a budget for the following calendar year on or before July 1st. This budget is forwarded to the fourteen member municipalities, with a statement of the proportion of the budget to be provided by each municipality. The LMCD Budget process typically commences in April and concludes in June. However, the operating LMCD budget is based on the calendar year.
