[ARCHIVED] 2020 Proposed Budget

budget 2020

The Village’s 2020 budget will be considered by the Village Board for first reading on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Village Hall. (www.villageoflombard.org/budget) The second/final reading will take place at the Village Board Meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21. The proposed 2020 budget is balanced and reflects the culmination of an extensive planning process, including meetings by committees (consisting of Village volunteer residents), beginning in 2018. The Village’s ongoing budget challenges are a result of a changing retail environment, rising inflation, and State Mandates (link: www.villageoflombard.org/unfundedstatemandates) that are beyond the Village’s control.

Lombard remains focused on providing residents with ongoing transparency when it comes to Village business, including long-term budget challenges. The Village will continue to face budget challenges head on and remains 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 positions and 12 part-time positions (through restructuring of positions when an employee retired), and reducing funding of various enhanced services or programs.
