Calculator that says 2023

Coralville’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget covers City operations and projects from July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023. 

Maximum Property Tax Levy
All cities in Iowa must pass an additional resolution each budget year establishing their maximum property tax dollars for levy. That resolution (number 2022-14) was passed unanimously by the City Council at its regular meeting at 6:30 pm on February 8, 2022. The City Council did not propose a change to the property tax levy rate this year.  View resolution
