On September 12, the City Council approved a preliminary property tax levy increase of 5.5 percent for 2017. The 5.5-percent increase is the maximum amount the City Council can raise the 2017 tax levy.

State statute requires cities to adopt a preliminary tax levy and budget by September 30 for the upcoming fiscal year. Once the preliminary levy is adopted it can be lowered, but not increased.

The recommended 2017 budget of $52,110,685 included $29,417,290 in property tax-supported programs, with $22,693,395 planned for non-property tax-supported items. The total for tax-supported programs represented an increase of $671,800 compared to the 2016 budget. The proposed tax levy increase also addressed long term funding gaps in the City’s asset replacement programs of $225,000, as well as offset an expected net reduction of $149,650 in non-tax revenues, such as court fines and interest earnings.

The 2017 recommended property tax levy amount required to fund the preliminary budget was $19,991,170 and included both residential and commercial properties in Roseville. It was an increase of $1,046,450 compared to the 2016 levy.

The estimated impact on residents vary depending on a property’s value and change in value relative to other properties in the city. Based on an expected property value increases, the median-valued Roseville home of $226,800 can expect to pay approximately $75.35 per month at the new rate, an increase of $4.22.
