FY2022-2023 City Manager Proposed Budget

August 4, 2022 Special City Council Meeting (CM Budget Presentation)
All budget information is available at

This proposed budget will raise more revenue from property taxes than last year’s budget by an amount of $365,282, which is a 9.24% increase from last year’s budget. The property tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year is $87,076.

This proposed budget proposes a tax rate of $0.297742 cent per $100 of valuation. This proposed rate is a one cent increase from prior year’s tax rate to pay new debt costs associated with the voter-approved $10M Bond in the May 7, 2022 Bond Election. Based upon the assumed level of revenue, the budget allocates resources to meet target expenditures for operations, capital improvements, equipment replacement, and debt service.  While meeting funding requirements during this period of inflation, the budget accounts for an 4% compensation cost of living increase, several new and capital replacement requirements.  The budgeted General Fund expenditures are approximately $6.18M while the total expenditures of all funds are approximately $10.135M.
