    Posted on 11/19/2018
    On Monday, November 19, the Pleasant Prairie Village Board considered and approved the 2019 general government budget to the Village Board. The budget will increase the tax levy from $11,883,252 in 2018 to $12,306,203 for 2019. The $422,949 increase is the total allowed based on $230 million of new construction during 2018. The 2018 municipal-wide revaluation added another $240 million to the Village resulting in a total 2018 value of about $3.6 billion. The total additional value of $470 million will reduce the Village tax rate by about 7% from $4.60 to $4.28.

    In 2019, the Village will receive about 22% of the total property tax payment, approximately $1,015 for the median valued home, to cover Village services such as fire and paramedic, police, community development, road improvements, and snow plowing. The proposed 2019 budget includes an addition of one police officer, the promotion of 7 part-time police dispatchers to full-time, and removal and replacement of emerald ash borer infected street trees. Proposed capital purchases includes $1.8 million for road improvements, the addition of one ambulance and one police fleet vehicle, and $180,000 for a roof replacement at Roger Prange Municipal Building.

    “The Village works to provide high quality municipal services for our residents and businesses including road improvements and high-quality public safety,” explained Village Administrator Nathan Thiel, “As a municipal government, the Village works diligently to prioritize annual projects to make sure that we are being fiscally responsible, while maintaining a stable and economically sound community.”
