Overland Park's city elected officials are looking to reduce the local property tax rate in the 2018 budget
The City Manager presented the proposed 2018 budget to the Governing Body at a Committee-of-the-Whole Meeting on Monday, June 5, 2017. The proposed budget includes allocations for 2018 operating, maintenance and capital expenditures, revenue projections for 2018, and updates to the 2018-2022 Capital Improvements Program and Maintenance Program. The proposed 2018 budget also includes adding personnel to the fire, police, parks, public works and other departments.
This proposal is a starting point for Governing Body discussions regarding the 2018 budget. Read the 2018 budget working documents or see the City Manager's presentation.
In July, the Mayor and City Council discussed lowering the city's mill rate from 13.8 mills to 13.55 mills.
The owner of a $300,000 house would see a decrease of $8.63 for an estimated total total city tax of $467; a $500,000 home, a decrease of $14.38 for an estimated total of $779. The totals are the city's portion of a property tax bill. Overland Park's portion accounts for approximately 12 percent of your total mill levy rate.
