The annual city budget process is an opportunity to match a financial plan to the community’s needs. The City of Spring Hill’s 2019 budget, approved unanimously by the City Council at its August 23 meeting, achieves this balance.
The 2019 budget earmarked dollars for city service and process enhancements, to include a street maintenance position and accounting supervisor position, service enhancements and internal process improvements including a citizen survey, Aquatic Center maintenance, broadband initiative and general operational needs associated with new streets and the addition of Veterans Park.
The water and wastewater fund balances and proposed rate structures were discussed earlier in the year with Council and rate resolutions will be brought to Council for consideration at a future meeting. Proposed 2019 budgets have been prepared based on the proposed rate structures and include equipment repair and replacement, upgrades and improvements to the wastewater treatment plant and buildings, and improvements to the collection and distribution systems.
The 2019 budget provides continued support for United Community Services of Johnson County (UCS), the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce, the Spring Hill Parks Advisory Board, Miami County Conservation District and the Spring Hill Public Safety Advisory Board. It also includes support for the Johnson County Utility assistance program, which also serves residents in Miami County and the maintenance of the Spring Hill Cemetery through the Spring Hill Cemetery Board.
