On Monday, September 16, the Village Board's Budget and Finance Committee received an introduction to the 2020 Village budget from Village Manager Rebecca Ewald and Finance Director Mark Emanuelson. You can view the 2020 budget presentation here.
Please note the tax levy increase identified in the budget presentation is not a recommended amount by any Village staff or officials. Similar to last year's budget process, staff presents a status quo budget based on priorities identified by the Village Board during this year's prioritization process. This budget presentation also gives the Village Board an opportunity to review personnel, services, and equipment and make difficult decisions to adopt a budget that is fiscally responsible but still provides and sustains core services.
If you are interested in attending future budget meetings, here is the full schedule:
- Monday, September 23 @ 6:00 p.m. - General Fund | Capital | Utilities
