Last night, the Pleasant Hill City Council unanimously approved the City’s FY 2018 budget, totaling $45.1 million. The budget is a reflection of the Pleasant Hill Mayor and City Council’s priorities set forth and serve as a policy-making tool for the community.
The FY 2018 budget for the City of Pleasant Hill is comprised of general fund expenditures totaling $6.7 million, special fund expenditures of $12.5 million, debt service fund expenditures of $3.6 million, capital improvement fund expenditures of $16.7 million, and business/proprietary fund expenditures of $5.6 million. The FY 2018 total budget is $45.1 million.
“The approved budget certainly focuses on priorities to continue moving our community forward in a positive direction,” said Don Sandor City Manager. “As we put together this budget, we focused on areas that residents prioritized in the community survey, including staff and service enhancements. As the City continues to grow and develop, capital improvement street and park projects remain a top priority. I want to thank the Mayor, Council and City staff for their hard work during this budget process. Even though this is my last budget, I know the City will continue to prioritize projects as they work together to do what is best for the businesses and citizens of Pleasant Hill.”
Key components of the FY 2018 budget include funding for the following initiatives:
Commitment to Public Safety
Capital Improvement Plan
The budget maintains the property tax levy for residents at $11.65 per $1,000 of taxable valuation. The tax rate has been held at this rate for the past eight years. The City’s operating and capital budget is thoroughly reviewed before it is approved by Council. Good long-term planning and monitoring of current operations and future needs of each department helps to ensure the levy rate is kept low, while ensuring City Council is making decisions that are in the best interest of the community.
