City Budget Remains Tight PDF E-mail

The city of West Carrollton projects that it will finish 2013 with a deficit of about $238,114. However, that amount is nearly $90,000 less than projected at the start of the year.

Members of city council approved the 2014 budget during its Nov. 26 meeting.

The 2014 general fund is projected to end with a $144,000 surplus. “The surplus is due to the ¼ percent income tax increase that voters approved in May 2013,” said Tom Reilly, finance director. “It’s important to note that this projection assumes no additional loss of revenue or decline in tax base,” he said.

“We will be watching very closely what goes on at the state level with regards to possible changes in local tax reform laws and red light cameras,” said Brad Townsend, city manager. City officials estimate that if House Bill 5 (tax reform) is approved it will cost the city about $400,000 per year and House Bill 69 (red light cameras) an estimated $150,000 – nearly wiping out the $600,000 that voters approved in May.
