City Council receives proposed fiscal year 2017 budget

League City’s proposed budget of $192.2 million for fiscal year 2016 to 2017 was delivered to City Council July 11.

The budget places focus on League City’s long-term vision and capital investment needs.

“The proposed budget addresses our major concerns by incorporating a comprehensive Capital Improvement Plan,” said City Manager Mark Rohr. “This includes placing focus on infrastructure and facilities reinvestment along with the long-term vision identified in our Roadmap to the Future and economic development.”

Under this proposal, League City residents would not see any changes to the property tax rate of $0.5735 per $100 valuation. Additionally, funding would be provided by increased fees and sales taxes discussed by City Council and staff earlier this year and $3.7 million in the general fund balance.

“The only way to control our fate as a city and not have our challenges rule us, is to first recognize what the challenges are, diagnose what causes them, and devise a proactive approach to address them,” said Rohr. “The budget we are putting forth addresses all of this and is the first comprehensive step towards achieving our goals.”

Major initiatives from the proposed operating budget are:
• A focus on capital improvement reinvestments for League City’s infrastructure and municipal facilities renewal;
• Funding for eight additional full-time positions;
• A new fire pumper;
• Night-time staffing stipend for the League City Volunteer Fire Department;
• A comprehensive salary and job classification study.

Budget discussions are set for July 19, July 25, Aug. 2, and Aug. 8. A public hearing and first reading of the budget ordinance is set for Aug. 23. The second reading for the budget is scheduled for Sept. 13 and, if approved, will be adopted at that time.

A full copy of the budget, including City Manager Mark Rohr’s letter of transmittal to Council, is available for review at the Helen Hall Library and www.leaguecity.com/budget.
