The Village of Misenheimer’s 2023-2024 proposed annual budget recommends the property tax rate remain at 22 cents per $100 valuation.

As in years past, the rate to apportion to the Richfield-Misenheimer Fire Department for fire and rescue will remain at seven cents of the total property tax rate.

The total proposed budget expenditure is $684,660, a 17% decrease from FY 2022-2023, which was $829,485. This includes $416,250 for police and public safety, $164,463 for general government and $60,000 for capital outlay.

There are no major capital projects budgeted, according to Village Administrator Anita Blair.

The revenue totals $684,660 and includes $276,025 in unrestricted intergovernmental revenues, $270,122 in sales and services and $70,197 in restricted intergovernmental revenues.

Pfeiffer University is renewing the contract for police services for fiscal year 2023-2024 at $270,122. The five-year contract is set to expire next fiscal year, Blair said.

A public hearing will be at 6 p.m. June 12 at the Misenheimer Community Building to review and discuss the proposed budget.
