Under the Truth in Taxation process, the City and other local taxing jurisdictions are required to hold a public hearing prior to adoption of its annual tax levy and General Fund budget. This process is intended to provide citizen input prior to final development of the budget document by staff and to assure that these comments can be incorporated into staff's final budget recommendations.
Presently the staff is working on preparation of the 2019 General Fund budget. City staff presented the preliminary tax levy to the City Council in September, and the City Council held a public hearing at its December 3rd meeting. At that meeting, the City Council passed a motion to consider adopting the 2019 budget and tax levy at the December 17th City Council meeting.
