Public hearing about the Three Rivers Park District 2016 general fund budget and operating levy.
The Three Rivers Park District Board of Commissioners has scheduled a public hearing about the 2016 general fund budget and operating levy.
The proposed 2016 general fund operating budget totals $35,871,378, which is an increase of $1,196,420, or 3.45 percent, from the 2015 budget. The operating budget is primarily funded by a property tax levy collected in suburban Hennepin County. For 2016, the proposed operating levy is $28,096,241, an increase of $414,953 (1.5 percent) from 2015. However, the increase in the operating levy is partially offset by a decrease in the debt levy. Therefore, the total tax levy for 2016 will be $41,494,979, which is a $287,709 increase (0.7 percent) from the amount levied in 2015.
The proposed budget will be available on the Park District’s website beginning on November 13. Copies of the budget also are available for review at the Three Rivers Park District Administrative Center.

The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners is expected to review Three Rivers Park District’s general fund budget on November 24, and the Park District Board will consider approval of the final 2016 property tax levy and reaffirmation of the 2016 general fund budget on December 17.
