Provide Input on 2021 Budget and Tax Levy
Once you have visited the Taxpayer Receipt application, we invite you to review the preliminary draft of the 2021 budget through an application called Balancing Act. The 2020 budget is currently “in balance” as proposed revenues equal proposed expenditures. We invite you to make simulated changes to the budget just keeping in mind that if you reduce taxes, you also need to reduce expenditures. Please understand that if you reduce taxes, you must also reduce expenditures (services).
