At a recent workshop, staff from nine of the city’s departments like public works, the City Clerk’s office, and human resources, presented their proposed budgets to the Mayor and city council.
Of those discussed, the majority project a reduced budget from last year, sighting efficiencies and reductions in some salaries and benefits.
The workshop also reviewed how Naperville compares to other cities in terms of local taxes, like our property taxes.
Finance Director, Rachel Mayer, says the numbers look good when compared to surrounding communities.
“I think that this is attributed to what Naperville has done over the last 20 years to really contain this rate and provide this high level of service with a very low property tax rate that is supporting city services,” she stated.
The next budget meeting will be held November 28 and will review the fire and police department’s budget.
