The Village of Buffalo Grove embraces a fiscally-conservative and forward-looking approach to budgeting for the operations of municipal government. This approach is coupled with the service-delivery expectations of the Village’s core customers - residents and businesses - and its extended customers - visitors, regional entities and other units of government. Each year, the Village determines its level of service, strategic goals and expectations, and staffing levels based upon anticipated revenues and progress toward long-term operational and capital development goals. The Village provides the following core services: administration, finance, public works, police protection, fire prevention and suppression, civil engineering, building inspections, urban planning-zoning, golf operations, and community event support. Additional non-core services are provided by others through regional partnerships or commissions, including the supply of potable water and dispatch services, and contract services including sanitary sewer treatment and refuse collection. Various direct and indirect fees are collected for non-core services via the 911-surcharge, ad valorem tax levy and user fees.
The 2018 budget is a critical road map for Village operations. This document reflects a continued commitment to maintaining sufficient reserves to cover the Village's operating needs while meeting long-term financial goals and planning for the growth and development of the Village.
A draft of the 2018 Budget is now available for review. This document was compiled by Village staff and will be presented at the November 13, 2017 Village Board meeting. To view a PDF of the document, click here.
