The Boscobel Common Council will meet Monday at 7 p.m. for a public hearing on the 2017 city budget. A preliminary budget released late last month shows very little change from the 2016 budget, when the gross city tax was $2,578,453. That compares to $2,601,701 in 2017—an increase of 0.9 percent.
Revenues will go up 0.6 percent in 2017, from $1,573,546 in 2016 to $1,582,308 next year. The main source of revenue for the city, besides property taxes, is state shared revenue at $960,866.
“It’s the exact same as last year, although we continue to lose state aid from other sources,” said City Administrator Arlie Harris.
