2017-2018 Budget Workshop Presentation # 2
The Fiscal Year 2017-18 budget for the City of Smithville, in effect from Oct. 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2018, provides details on property tax rates, long-term debt obligations, the General Fund, Utility Fund and expenses for the city's 16 departments.
The report details revenues and expenses and shows comparisons to last year's budget.
Debt Obligation Reporting
In 2015, the Texas Legislature Passed House Bill 1378 to increase local government debt transparency. This bill requires all subdivisions of state government to annually compile their debt obligation data for public access.
Budget Infographics Provides Fiscal Transparency
The City of Smithville is pleased to announce the release of Budget Infographics. Citizens now have access to an “at-a-glance” look at revenue and spending in both the Utility and General Fund. Budget Infographics is subscription-based software service that converts the City’s annual budget from a PDF file into a user friendly, graphical format with one click drill-down to details. The software is capable of producing city-defined metrics that show historic trends and comparisons with other municipalities from within the region (e.g., Elgin, Bastrop, Luling, LaGrange, and Giddings). Budget Infographics is a useful tool to visually communicate to the public all the components of the City of Smithville’s annual budget.
