Swimming Pool Pushes New Hope’s Preliminary Budget Upward
The New Hope City Council got its first look at the 2020 preliminary budget this week. It’s proposed to go up about 8 percent higher than last year’s budget.
The majority of the almost $1.2 million proposed increase in general fund expenses comes from adding the new swimming pool facility operation back into the budget. Operating the pool adds about $700,000.
The estimated overall impact of the city tax levy on residential properties would also go up 8 percent. For houses ranging from $150,000 to $400,000, the estimated tax impact would range from $67 to $212 per year.
