Topeka spending limits aim to prevent property tax hike

KSAL StaffJuly 13, 2016

Topeka is setting spending limits targeted at keeping the city from raising property taxes next year.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/29CmAHP) reports that a city governing body that consists of the mayor and nine council members made the decision Tuesday night. The vote comes as cities begin preparing for a new state-imposed property tax lid to take effect. The tax lid is meant to limit the growth of city and county governments.

Local governments will have to hold a special election starting with next year’s budget if they want to keep any revenue above the tax lid.

The Topeka governing body also scheduled a public hearing on the proposed 2017 budget for its next meeting, on Aug. 9. The governing body plans to consider finalizing that budget on Aug. 16.
