2018 Proposed City Budget

City Budget

The City Council discussed the preliminary budget for 2018 at the September 5 City Council meeting. Final approval of the budget and levy will take place after a public meeting held in December. Property owners will receive a notice of the hearing and the property tax impacts in November. The preliminary levy can be reduced at that time but not increased.

The 2018 Budget assumes continued levels of service with some additional enhancements and strategic initiatives. Aggressive street reconstruction plans continue with plans for rehabilitating 9.5 miles of streets and seal coating 20 miles of streets. Park improvements will continue in 2018, with renovations planned for Crooked Lake and Riverwind parks as approved by voters as part of the 2013 Park Bond, as well as money has been included to close several sidewalk gaps in the city. Two new full-time positions have been added to the budget – one for a park maintenance employee to handle the increasing needs of maintenance at the new and renovated parks as well as a Community Outreach Specialist for the Police Department. This position will focus on addressing crime perception and implementing and reinforcing crime prevention strategies through Neighborhood Watch and other initiatives.


The proposed 2018 City tax levy is $26,845,674 as compared to $25,613,000 in 2017.

An estimated impact on benchmark homes is as follows:
