At the March 21, 2023, City Council meeting, City Council requested “sliding scale” options for tax rate reductions between 1 cent and 4 cents of the real estate tax. When creating a sliding scale for real estate tax reductions, City leadership made a few assumptions, including that all dedications and existing policies remain the same and that reductions initially focus on major budget changes prior to baseline services.
With each penny reduction, a corresponding reduction will need to be made for General Fund expenditures for both the School and City operations.
The reduction options provided are options for consideration but are not intended to be presented as the only possible reduction options.
The list primarily targets staffing and Operating Budget additions included in the City Manager’s Proposed FY 2023-24 Operating Budget and CIP.
The reduction options are categorized into one of six categories: Tourism, Quality of Life, Communications/Customer Services, Recruitment and Retention, Maintenance and Public Safety.
