Did you Know – Budget Edition
As the temperature starts to cool and the leaves change color, we know the fall season is upon us. For local government, that also means budget season. Cities, counties, and certain special purpose districts in Washington State must adopt budgets on an annual or, in some cases, biennial (two-year) basis. The City of Normandy Park uses a biennial budget to strengthen our financial planning, and this document must be adopted by December 31 of every even-number year.
Our budget provides legal authority to expend funds for various purposes and reflects the legislative body’s priorities and the organization’s goals. The Normandy Park proposed preliminary budget will be presented to the City Council at the October 11th City Council meeting.
Did you know that property taxes represent the city’s largest revenue source? The support of our residents has given the city the ability to levy the funds needed to maintain first-class services that include our own local police department with 10 law enforcement officers.
While property taxes are important, the city cannot run current operations on property tax alone. That is why we have a diversified revenue stream to support city services. Where does the other funding come from? A variety of sources like sales tax, utility tax, permit fees, and charges for services. By having a variety of revenue sources, we can maintain our financial stability.
Are you interested in learning more about the city’s revenues and expenditures? Join the City Council on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. This meeting will include a review of the proposed preliminary budget for 2023-2024.
