Updated Budget Guide for Cities Now Available

The League has updated the online Budget Guide for Cities with new state laws that can affect city budget decisions for 2019. These include changes to competitive bidding, new Public Employees Retirement Association contribution levels for police and fire personnel, as well as the Budget Guide’s standard information on cost-of-living adjustments, local government aid, and more.

The Budget Guide provides tax notification hearing (TNT) dates and includes new information about the authority to become a Purple Heart City. It also contains the coming year’s League dues, as well as a discussion on estimating costs of health benefits and LMCIT coverage.
