Activities will be held at Town Hall and will include free food, a bounce house, music, a magic show and more. National Night out is held each year to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood and police partnerships and let criminals know that neighborhoods are fighting back against crime.

The budget shall be itemized to allow as clear a comparison as practicable between expenditures included in the budget and actual expenditures for the same or similar purposes made for the preceding year. The budget must show as definitely as possible each of the projects for which expenditures are set up in the budget and the estimated amount of money carried in the budget for each project. The Town’s fiscal year begins October 1 and ends September 30. The budget is divided into several accounts, known as funds. These funds include the General Fund, a Capital Improvement Fund, Wastewater Fund, Street Maintenance Fund and Special Funds (Bartonville Community Development Corporation and Bartonville Crime Control & Prevention District). The General Fund contains the largest amounts of revenue and expenditures. The General Fund’s largest source of revenue is property tax. The budget is based on a tax rate of $0.192940 per $100 of assessed value, the same tax rate as last year. Other sources of revenue include general sales tax, franchise taxes, license and permit fees, and municipal court fines. It is the policy of the Town to prepare a balanced budget. A balanced budget is one where the proposed expenses are less than or equal to the estimated revenues. A balanced budget may also include situations where the Council approved the use of reserves of the fund balance to offset the revenue shortfall. If, during the year, the revenues received or expected to be received will be less that estimated the Mayor or Town Administrator will recommend a revised or amended expense appropriation for Council approval that will again balance the budget. The adopted budget may be viewed by accessing the Finance page of the Town’s website at www.townofbartonville.com or by visiting Town Hall.
