Local taxing authorities should anticipate more money in their operating budgets next year after the Montgomery County Budget Commission approved a total distribution of more than $38.5 million in local government and public library funds, an increase of nearly $1.5 million from the previous year.

Budget Commission members, County Prosecutor Mat Heck, County Auditor Karl Keith and County Treasurer Carolyn Rice, voted to approve the annual allocations at their meeting on Monday at the County Administration Building.  The allocations are determined based upon an estimate of the available funds from the Ohio Department of Taxation and a formula approved by the county’s jurisdictions and the Commission.

The county’s annual estimate for the Local Government Fund increased by more than $600,000 and the annual estimate for the Public Library Fund increased by nearly $500,000 from the previous year’s estimates. The $18.6 million allocation approved by the commission for the local government fund is a 3.1% increase over last year, and the $20.2 million allocation for the public library fund is a 2.4% increase.

Of the $18 million allocated from the Local Government Fund, Montgomery County will receive the largest portion with $7.9 million followed by the City of Dayton with $6.4 million. 

The following chart outlines the distribution of the estimated 2017 local government fund.
