2019 Budgets are Set

The City Council, City Manager, Finance Director and department heads worked hard reviewing and balancing the 2019 budget. Six workshops and two council meetings were held. Originally, the preliminary levy of the proposed tax statements that the county sent in November was set at 15%. It was reduced to 8.81%.

At the December 4, 2018 City Council meeting the City Council approved the 2019 General Fund Budget, General Property Tax Levy and Debt Levy in the current amounts:

  • General Fund Budget: $6,843,543 (Increase of $320,958 from 2018 and includes an 8.81% levy increase). 
  • Property Tax Levy: 8.81% (Increase is down from the 15% preliminary levy of the proposed property tax statements the county sent in November).
