Winfield’s proposed budget for 2017 will include a decreased mill levy and increased funding for street work. Under the terms of the proposed spending plan, some projects will be delayed though so the city can continue to pay off it’s debts. The total 2017 budget will be $11.1 million in expenditures, with expected revenues of $11.3 million. The mill levy will decrease by 0.914 mills in 2017, making for the lowest mill levy since 2008. Property tax receipts requested for 2017 will increase from $3.674 million to $3.744 million, an increase of just under $70,000. Sixty-five percent of the proposed 2017 budget is for the five utilities — electric, natural gas, water, wastewater and refuse.
