City Council Passes Flat Tax Levy and Balanced Budget for 2023

ROCKFORD, Ill. – Tonight, the City Council passed a flat property tax levy and a balanced 2023 budget with general fund expenses of $193.1 million.

“I’m thrilled that we are once again able to approve a balanced budget with no increase in property taxes,” says Mayor McNamara. “I think it’s critical that we remain good stewards of tax dollars. I’m proud of our City Council and our staff for developing a budget that allows us to live within our means, while still providing essential services to our residents.”

Important items included in the budget:

  • No increase in property taxes.
  • $1.5 million annual contribution to Rockford Promise from casino revenue. This supports the Rockford Promise NIU Scholarship, which provides students who live in Rockford, attend Rockford Public Schools and earn a 3.0 GPA with the opportunity to earn a degree at NIU tuition-free.
  • An additional $3.3 million in state mandated pension contributions.
  • Dedicates additional resources to address code enforcement challenges.
  • Invests in the Rockford Police Department’s and the Mayor’s Office of Domestic and Community Violence Prevention’s enforcement, prevention and intervention initiatives.
