2017 Proposed Budget

Lisa Guedea Carreño reviewed recent legislative changes requiring the Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF) to provide, by August 1 of each year, circuit breaker/tax cap impact estimates for the coming fiscal year to each local government unit in the State. The DLGF circuit breaker estimates were by based on conservative estimates and resulted in a potential loss of more than $1.4 million in funding for the Library’s 2017 budget. This would represent nearly 20% of the Library’s budget, the largest unfunded percentage of any year since tax caps first took effect in 2010. There does not seem to be sufficient economic data to support such an estimate. The director reported that she has been in contact with other public library directors as well as our financial advisor at Umbaugh and has learned that the DLGF’s estimates for many other local taxing units across the state are alarmingly high as well.

Jane A. Garoutte recommended 2017 draft budget for advertising:
Operating: $7,142,234
Bond & Interest Redemption Fund: $288,400

Total 2017 budget to be advertised: $7,430,634

Tax revenue estimates provided by the Department of Local Government Finance field representative at the budget workshop on August 2, included Property Tax Maximum Levy of $5,349,707, Local Income Tax of $1,441,826 and $208,711 in other miscellaneous taxes. The County Auditor announced at the August 13th County Council meeting that the County had contracted with Umbaugh & Associates to prepare more realistic estimates for circuit breaker losses for all units in the county. Necessary adjustments to the draft budget will be made based on these estimates.

The 2017 Budget Hearing will be held September 20, 2016, and the Budget Adoption meeting will be held October 18, 2016.
