2017 City Budget

The City Council approved the budget and levy for 2017 at the December 6 City Council meeting. The 2017 City tax levy is $25,613,000 as compared to $24,873,760 in 2016.

The 2017 Budget assumes continued levels of service with some additional enhancements and strategic initiatives. The Park Improvement Fund includes $2.7 million to continue park renovations as authorized by voters as part of the Park Bond approved in 2013. Additional training for public safety personnel regarding de-escalation, mental health and implicit bias is included in the budget as well as overtime funding for significant criminal investigations. Continued street maintenance initiatives are in place including seal coating 18-24 miles of roadways and the reconstruction of 10.5 miles of State Aid roads. Park and trail improvements of $300,000 is also in the budget as well as new summer programming initiatives at Sand Creek Park.

Additionally, the Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) is proposing to levy $725,000, the same amount levied in 2016.
