The City operates on a fiscal year that begins on October 1 and ends on September 30. The budget for the City is adopted each September after a thorough review process involving staff and City Council. Budget requests are driven by various plans to include strategic plans, the major thoroughfare plan, and the parks/pathways plan. The budget is drafted using a modified zero-based budgeting model; new budgets are not derived merely by increasing previous years’ budgets but are based on analyzing each request on an as-needed basis without the assumption that funding exists.
This notice concerns the 2021 property tax rates for City of Shenandoah. This notice provides information about two tax rates used in adopting the current tax year's tax rate. The no-new-revenue tax rate would Impose the same amount of taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. In most cases, the voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate a taxing unit can adopt without holding an election. In each case, these rates are calculated by dividing the total amount of taxes by the current taxable value with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.
