City plans for expansion amidst mild deficit

NORTH LIBERTY– As the City of North Liberty expands services and hires new employees, the upcoming fiscal year appears to hold steady. The city budget will climb ever so slightly from last year’s approximately $48 million, to a total of $51,552,360. North Liberty’s taxable valuation will grow by about 6.74 percent from FY18’s 8.68 percent, every spending category in the general budget will see an increase and for the eighth consecutive year, the tax rate will remain $11.03, thanks in large part to a steady growth in property values.
But it was no easy feat.
