The process of developing a city’s annual budget is a balancing act with many priorities competing for limited resources. For the past several months, Roseville staff, with feedback from the City Council, have been reviewing department budgets, developing organizational priorities and considering community needs.

The 2019 budget recommended by Trudgeon totals $55,707,140. It proposes an increase of $1,467,910 compared to Roseville’s $54,239,230 fiscal 2018 budget. The 2019 budget continues to fund all existing city programs and services. The increase is primarily due to inflationary costs and a limited number of enhancements.

The proposed 2019 budget is partially funded with $21,438,050 from property taxes. Of the total property tax revenue, residential property taxes account for approximately $11.8 million. The remaining revenue total, $34,269,090 or 62 percent of the budget, comes from fee-based revenue sources such as  license and permit fees, recreation program fees, user charges for water and sewers, intergovernmental sources, court fees, interest earnings and reserves.

The 2019 recommended property tax levy increase is $757,545 and includes both residential and commercial properties in Roseville. It is an increase of 3.7 percent compared to the 2018 levy.

The impact on residents will vary depending on a property’s value and change in value compared to 2018. Based on expected property value increases of about 7.6 percent, the median-valued Roseville home, valued at $254,900, would see a monthly property tax increase of $4.56 to $79.93.

The City Council will vote on approving the preliminary budget and property tax levy at its September 24 meeting. Prior to that meeting, the City Council is requesting feedback on the proposed budget from residents.

Residents can share their thoughts on the budget by completing the Budget Priorities Card including in the upcoming September/October city newsletter which is mailed to all Roseville residences.
