Budget & Tax Rate


As Mayor, I am proud to present the adopted budget for the City of Meadows Place for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2023.    This budget is the result of input from Citizens, Council, Department Heads and Staff.  It represents long hours of hard work and the dedication of many. Late Spring signals the time to begin the annual budget process which carries on throughout the summer. This is done to determine and prioritize the needs of the City. Budget requests are based on the obligations, programs and priorities that the City Council has discussed or committed to in the past. A recommended budget is formed based on the projected revenue and is then submitted to the citizens and the City Council. Council works with both the Mayor and Department heads in a collaborative effort to determine the most effective use or our tax dollars. After input from the public, the Council has the opportunity to revise the budget to conform with its objectives.

More than ever, the budget is a planning tool, providing guidance and direction to city staff throughout the budget year. It addresses the goals and objectives set by City Council, meets the criteria of the Meadows Place Vision Statement, and maintains the safety standards set forth by our citizens.

The City of Meadows Place has adopted a budget that was developed using a conservative approach as has been our practice in years past yet is able to assure city services and continued progress.

The Budget Process

Each Department Head worked diligently to prepare this budget.

There were multiple departmental budget meetings, first with the Mayor and then with Mayor and Council collectively. Each and every budget line item was examined, scrutinized and justified to see how we could make the budget requests meet the city’s vision and still fit within the projected revenue forecasts.

The adopted budget is posted on city’s web site for the public to review and is also available for viewing in the City Secretary’s office.

Tax Rate

This budget is based on an adopted tax rate of $0.806 per $100 of assessed value.  This rate is a decrease of $0.026/100.

Note: there are no additional MUD, HOA or Levy District taxes in the City of Meadows Place.

Thank You, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the budget, tax rate or finances of the city.

Charles D. Jessup IV – Mayor
