Lombard's Budget

property tax graph (JPG)The Village continues to face budget challenges head on and will remain focused on providing residents with a balanced budget while maintaining excellent core services. Since 2017, the Village has made cumulative budget reductions of over $3.8 million. The Village eliminated 9 full time and 12 part-time positions which represented $1.2 million in reduced personnel costs and eliminated or reduced funding of various enhanced services and programs.

Property taxes represent 17.9% of the Village’s projected General Fund revenues. The remaining General Fund revenues come from other sources, with sales tax representing the largest portion, 28.6%. These revenues pay for core services that include public safety provided by Police and Fire Departments; building and code enforcement from Community Development; responsible administrative oversight; and roads, forestry and infrastructure maintenance from Public Works. It’s important to remember that the Village receives less than $0.08 of each property tax dollar to provide the above services.
