Proposed Budget & Tax Rate Highlights

  • The proposed tax rate of $0.518731 per $100 valuation is lower than the no new revenue rate of $0.519193. 
  • This represents the lowest proposed tax rate since at least 1990. 
  • Total proposed expenditures represent an increase of approximately 11.27% over the current year's adopted budget. Fully funding the City's Capital Replacement Fund and Enterprise Solutions Replacement Fund are the primary factors contributing to this increase. 
  • If the expenses to fully fund the Replacement Funds are subtracted, total expenditures increased by only 2.66%. In an inflationary period of nearly 9%, City staff is pleased to present a budget that allows us to provide the services our residents expect while also keeping expenditures down.
