As proposed, the budget allocates $244 million in expenditures across multiple funds.

The All Funds Summary on page 28 provides a succinct accounting of total revenues and expenditures in each fund as proposed and for the previous three fiscal years.
Delving deeper into the proposal, each fund is summarized then broken down by department or function with revenue and expense line item detail.
The General Fund, which is primarily supported by property and sales taxes, is budgeted at $103 million for the coming year with a projected ending fund balance of 26.3%. It proposes to decrease the property tax rate to 72.3 cents per $100 valuation from the current rate of 73.3 cents.
