The  budget amount is $32,735,000.00, a mill levy dollar amount of $5,481,492 and a mill levy of 47.848 mills, based on July 1st estimated valuation This represents a 4.822 mill levy increase and an assessed ad valorem tax dollar increase of $553,205.00 over last year's budget amount. The ever increasing operational costs, KPERS, KP&F, anticipating National Health Care costs, and other uncontrollable costs, help attribute to to increase in expenditures.  This is the first time in 7 years the City has asked for a mill levy increase. Along with the mill levy increase, a reduction in staffing of 23 positions has taken place over the last 2 years. The Commision also approved the lease of a copy machine from Southern Office Supply for the Mid America Air Museum, and approved entering once again into a partnership with the Mid America Air Museum Foundation Board for a 2015 Traveling exhibit.
