On December 6, Roseville City Council adopted the 2022 budget. The $58.1 million budget is supported by $24.8 million in property tax revenues and is the result of a months-long process that started in April, 2021.

City Manager Pat Trudgeon is pleased with the collaborative efforts involved in the creation of this year’s budget proposal. 

I appreciate the effort of the public and council for taking a look at this budget from a holistic perspective,” Trudgeon says. “It’s exciting to see how the budget aligns with what we’ve outlined for our city priorities… now it’s time to start ‘doing the work’ to make sure these funded priorities see action in 2022.

Some of those 2022 budget priorities include:

  • Investing in better community outcomes to further equity work - $126,000 levy increase
  • Investment in Maintaining City Programs and Workforce to cover inflationary costs - $729,304 levy increase
  • New staffing impacts to include an Environmental Intern, Fire Cadet, Engagement & Communications reorganization - $91,250 levy increase    
  • Investment in infrastructure - $220,000 levy increase
  • Use of Federal ARPA funds to assist in community COVID recovery
  • Strategic use of financial reserves

Even while meeting these priorities, the $58.1 million budget holds the line on spending and is a reduction from the 2022 total city budget. This reduction is due to the 2021 capital needs at the OVAL that aren’t replicated in 2022 and for the cost savings associated with moving IT Metro-INET functions to a separate entity in 2022. 

Estimated City Tax Levy Impact

The median valued home of $296,500 will see an increase of $5.38 per month in city property taxes – or $64.56 annual increase.  The majority of this increase is due to the 5.7% increase in the median valuation of homes set by the Ramsey County Assessor.
