● Published by City of Taylorsville
On May 6, 2015 the council received the 2015-2016 tentative budget as proposed by the mayor and city staff. The budget is one of the key guiding documents in our city. As council members our greatest responsibility is to adopt an annual city budget. This is defined by ordinance and a job that we take very seriously.
Although the budget is adopted yearly, we as a council are continuously monitoring revenues and expenses throughout the year. We appreciate the knowledge and advice of Scott Harrington, our city CFO. We have met and continue to meet one-on-one with him and we are grateful for his expertise. In addition to Scott, we have a budget committee chaired by Lynn Handy. The budget committee is made up of individuals with financial backgrounds and practical experience who meet monthly to review the financial condition of the city.
We appreciate the mayor and administration and the many hours spent in preparing the budget for our review. We also greatly appreciate you, our residents, and the support you give us as we work together for the good of the city. As we continue to study, ask questions and make recommendations, we do so with the goal of adopting a fiscally-conservative, balanced budget with no tax increase, while adding amenities that enhance our quality of life today and into the future.
