Budget Workbooks (for Budget Year 2017)

This page contains the budget workbooks to be used by municipalities in completing their 2017 budgets.  Amended budget workbooks are also provided.  The budget workbooks are organized by municipality type and are in varying sizes. 

The computation to determine levy limit now contains an adjustment for inflation using the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumer as published by the United States Department of Labor.  This CPI rate for calendar year 2015 to be used in preparing the 2017 budgets is 0.125% (.00125). 

Please note that since the 2017 budget workbook’s initial publication in January of 2016, the 2017 budget workbooks have been modified twice with the most current revision occurring on June 6, 2016.  The modifications include the CPI rate being adjusted to .125% (.00125), the personal property calculation (for the computed limit) has been modified to include the value of oil and gas leaseholds and mobile homes, and the value of property that has changed in use that was once removed from the calculation has once again been added back into the calculation.

In addition, the County Treasurer and County Clerk Budget Forms have also been update to reflect the change in personal property reporting (not subtracting out oil and gas leaseholds and mobile homes). .      

If earlier versions of the budget workbooks or forms have been used (prior to June 8, 2016), they will need to be either downloaded again or modified to reflect the changes discussed in the paragraphs above.  If you have questions concerning the modifications, please do not hesitate to contact Municipal Service's staff at either 785-296-3356 or 785-296-8083.
