Analysis Of Village Of Campbellsport's 2018 Budget

By Trustee David Mowry

As a first-year village trustee and a new member of the village finance committee, I often receive questions about our village finances. The budget was published last week, but that may not answer all of your questions.
I have spent more time than I would like to admit studying and researching the financial position of our village in preparation for budget season. What did I learn? Well, probably more than you care to read, so here are the high points.
First is the good news. I am pleased to report that the village board of trustees and the village department heads collaborated to create a balanced budget with a zero increase projected for our tax rate. There is also some growth in our property tax revenue due to new development that helps to cover our expenses.
One of the largest challenges was a higher fire protection rate for 2018 (over a $75,000 increase) payable to the water utility. Part of this increase will be paid from our village budget, and part will be paid on our utility bill. For most single family households, this will amount to a flat fee increase of $4.02 per month.
In order to minimize the impact of the 2018 fire protection increase and to balance the budget with a minimal impact on the village portion of property taxes, our expense budgets had to be reduced. Our general government budget was reduced, and tough decisions were made in all departments to keep expense budgets lower or very close to the same as last year while still addressing critical needs.
In terms of our tax rate, it would be great if we could avoid (or at least minimize) tax rate increases while we improve our debt position as we did for 2018. A significant portion of our property and utility revenues go to pay for debt payments — primarily for infrastructure that would support a larger population than we currently have in our community.
There are two ways this will get better. ....
