Truth in Taxation

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 2015 General Fund budget, a draft of which can be seen below. While the Council heard Staff recommendations for the General Fund budget and the 2015 tax levy at the December 1st Council meeting, as well as took any public comment on these recommendations, it should be noted that no formal action will be taken by the Council until the December 15th Council meeting.
