Impacts of Levy Limits

Posted on: March 19, 2019

City of Hartford

Hartford

How does the levy limit impact your community's services?  The increase in net new construction is not keeping up with added need for services thus different departments need to hold back on expanding services and personnel which weakens our overall offerings. Road replacement budget has not increased in over a decade. Simply less roads are being maintained at the same level. Fund balances are being eaten away to answer local resident needs.

How does the levy limit impact your community's budgeting practices and finances, eg, your amount of borrowing?  Our level of increase in borrowing is going up slower than inflation due to the lack of interest in raising taxes through debt.

How did the levy limit impact your community's staffing levels and employee compensation?  Our compensation stays competitive (which isn't saying much), the level of benefits (insurance) continues to go down. Our staffing levels have not increased since before we had 3,000 less people. Our average raise is 1.75% total.
