Carson City budget hearing, passage set Monday

Carson City’s budget next fiscal year, which is $135.6 million or $67.7 million depending on how people tote it up, is set for passage Monday.

The action will be preceded by a public hearing in a routine yet special Board of Supervisors meeting required by state law. Passage is expected to be routine as departmental and City Hall staff crafted the bulk of the Fiscal Year 2015-16 spending guide earlier, and board members recommended a few changes at their regular meeting Thursday.

Monday’s special meeting begins at 10 a.m. in the Sierra Room at the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.

The all funds budget — which includes federal funds, enterprise fund money, other revenue sources and general fund revenues — is the more than $135 million figure. The nearly $68 million figure, meanwhile, is the general fund portion and relies on such local taxes as city sales tax, property taxes and some other taxes or fees Carson City residents pay.

Other action stemming from the special meeting agenda will be on items also viewed as routine.

Among them are adopting a resolution setting the property tax rate for County Cooperative Extension at the same 1.28 cents per $100 assessed value as before, which is part of the overall $3.52 per $100 levy, setting up a $100,000 maintenance fund basically for repair of city government building roofs, and adopting a Redevelopment Authority budget. The mayor and supervisors make up both the board and the authority.
