[ARCHIVED] City Council adopts 2014 Budget

The Roseville Council has adopted a balanced Fiscal Year 2014 Budget that goes into effect January 1st, Interim City Manager Patrick Trudgeon announced today.

The budget totals $50,669,560, $23,084,285 for tax-supported programs and $27,585,275 for non-tax supported programs, for an increase of $1,299,483 and $3,931,307, respectively. The budget was approved on a 3-2 vote during Monday night’s meeting at Roseville City Hall.

“The budget funds the priorities and vision of our community,” Trudgeon said. “It does the important job of maintaining the current programs and services that the residents of Roseville have come to expect, while at the same limiting a rise in the annual property tax levy as much as possible.”

Roseville’s 2014 tax-supported budget increase is nearly six percent. Included in that increase is $560,000 for the remaining debt obligations associated with the Parks Renewal Program. The adopted budget also creates a new volunteer coordinator position, which will be responsible for managing the existing volunteer network and expanding the use of volunteer in city operations, as well as a new park maintenance position.

“The City currently utilizes thousands of volunteers that combined contribute more than 25,000 hours annually,” said Trudgeon. “The new position will provide the City with the means to more effectively manage this vital resource while also exploring additional opportunities for volunteers.”

In an effort to limit the tax levy and its impact on homeowners, the council adopted a 4.3 percent rise. The City property tax levy will be $18,003,721 for an increase of $733,896. With the increase, the projected tax bill for a median-priced home is estimated to be approximately $65 per month in 2014, $4.46 higher on average than last year.

Currently, ninety cents of every city tax dollar in Roseville goes directly for city services. The remaining portion pays for legal, election, accounting and general administrative costs. Roseville also continues to have one of the lowest tax levels in the region.

State statute requires all cities with populations in excess of 2,500 to adopt a final tax levy and budget by December 30th for the upcoming fiscal year.
