Bellevue Council Adopts 2017-18 Budget

Posted By Chris Johnson, Friday, December 9, 2016

After several months of deliberation and public testimony, the Bellevue Council adopted a 2017-18 Operating Budget and 2017-23 Capital Improvement Program. This year, the Chamber focused its input on the Operating side; here are a few general observations

  • The operating budget contains a modest projected growth rate of 3% per year or 6% for the 2017-18 Biennium.
  • The cost of government expressed by taxes as a percentage of personal income remains constant at 2.4%. This tracks with the project inflation rate for 2017 of 2.4%, slightly up from 2.2% in 2016.
  • The Chamber applauds the decision not to raise general property taxes, and to “bank” the difference between the implicit price deflator (IPD) amount of .95% and the maximum 1% aggregate property tax increase allowed under state law.

For additional details, see our letter to the Bellevue Council below dated December 2, 2016.
