2015 Budget Update
Check out our preliminary 2015 budget information here. A public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 6:30 PM. Over the next few days, I’ll try to explain parts of the budget. Please email me if you have questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
At our last town board meeting, we agreed to cut items from the budget including trail planning, youth services, community grants, huge cuts to the highway department request and more, totaling $256,000. None of us is happy about the cuts but we brought total appropriations to $5,211,400 ($37,354 less than the 2014 budget) continuing the trend that has brought appropriations down more than $1,000,000 since 2010.
Non-tax revenue has increased more than $500,000 since 2010 – so we’re closing the gap. Our reliance on surplus funds is decreasing. In 2010, we budgeted to use more than $2,000,000 from fund balance. This year, to avoid a spike in the tax rate, we will budget to use $675,000 of fund balance.
