Alderpersons in Beaver Dam’s Administrative Committee felt confident moving forward with the 2017 preliminary budget after Monday night, which include a drug detective position, full time paramedic and an off-leash dog area. The proposed net tax levy is a 1.5 percent increase amounting to a more than $147,000 bump over this year. Breaking down the levy increase compared to 2016 involves: 4.5 percent rise in operations and maintenance costs, .1 percent drop in debt services costs, No change in transit service costs, 1 percent drop in capital outlay costs, 1.9 percent decrease in revenue increase. In a little more detail, the 2017 tax levy summary shows that the operations and maintenance budget could cost $13.1 million (up from the $12.6 adopted last year). The debt services could cost $2.1 million (a relatively small drop of about $15,000 compared to 2016), the local share of the transit program would cost $80,000 and general capital outlay would run $289,000 (a 24 percent decrease compared to 2016).
