Pennington County Begins 2018 Budget Process

Pennington County departments began making requests for the 2018 budget this week, reports the Rapid City Journal.  The 2018 budget takes effect on January 1, 2018, but must be finalized by September 30, 2017. 

The Pennington County Commissioners requested each department end the year with 18% of their total revenue set aside for reserves in 2018.  This gives them money to use before tax dollars are paid.  The anticipated revenue increase is $4.8 million; meanwhile the anticipated expenses grew to $7.9 million.  This would be a 0.075 cent increase in the county’s consolidated tax levy ($7.50 per $100,000 of taxable value). 

Issues being discussed include raises for law enforcement offices, commissioner pay, and major projects.
