Before reviewing the preliminary 2010 Budget, Greg Sevier discussed the Property Tax Levy, Rate & Valuation report from 1990-2008 and commented on the 2009 and 2010 budgets. Sevier walked the Council through the preliminary budget which was prepared using a modest increase in the mill levy and answered questions. Following discussion Council agreed to decrease the mill levy by 4 pts. The revenues would remain about the same due to the increases in home values. Brown moved to approve the 2010 Budget which would include the above changes; Mastio seconded; passed unanimously. The draft budget will now be corrected and the Public Hearing Notice forwarded to the Wichita Eagle for publication. The Public Hearing will be held prior to the regular council meeting on July 28, 2009, 5:30pm, City Hall. Upon approval the budget will be sent to the County and State.

Sevier was asked the best time to transfer CIP funds from the General Fund to the Special CIP Fund. He recommended Council authorize the transfer of funds at the December meeting..
