Budget for FYE2020

Below is the proposed budget for FYE2020.  This budget begins in July of 2019.  The higlights include maintaining our current tax rate at $12.17, lowering the cost for water while raisinig the cost for sewer, establishing a 1% Franchise Fee on Gas and Electric, $400,000 is road work, purchasing a new ambulance, and water infrastrucutre improvements.  


All of the major expenditures are being performed with cash on hand.  Every budget year includes each department setting aside money into an equipment fund.  As these funds build, they allow us to make these large expenditures without having to borrow money to do them.  The street project is calling for Phase 2 of the Street Improvement Plan being implemented.  


The changes to water and sewer allow us to properly receive revenues where they are needed.  We now have a fair amount of revenue in the water fund to be able to do projects without borrowing, so we are lowering that rate.  We increased the sewer rate by the same amount in order to bring more revenue into the sewer fund.  That fund is still negative, but it is improving greatly.  We have an added expense for the treatment facility capital reserve.  That added expense would steer us off of our positive direction in fund recovery.  The end result will be no increase to your overall bill.


The 1% Franchise Fee for gas and electric will replace the current 1% Local Option Sales Tax on your bill, so this will not increase the bill.  That current 1%sales tax is shared with other taxing bodies.  Replacing that with the Franchise Fee will mean that we capture all of that 1%.  The end result is the City's $1,500 in LOST is replaced with $39,000 in the Franchise Fee, meaning a net gain for the City of about $37,500.  Again, this does not increase your bill.  


If you have any questions about this budget, please feel free to contact City Hall or drop an email via the Contact Us page.
