District Managers Approve 2018 Budget and Levy

The CMSCWD Board of Managers approved a 2018 budget of $706,689 at its meeting on September 13th.  Most of the financing for District activities and projects will come from projected state grants of $122,000 and a levy on local taxpayers of $574,943.  The budget is a 1% increase over 2017 while the levy is an increase of 19% from last year.  The Managers will examine the levy again in December with the year end in sight to make adjustments based on actual grants received and projects completed this year.  The final levy must be certified to Washington County by the end of December and can be reduced up until then.
