The ICSD is proposing a 2020-2021 budget totaling $136,842,648, which is an increase of 3.7% from last year. Although our proposed budget includes a tax levy increase of 2.81%, we anticipate a tax rate decrease for the fifth year in a row. Additional information about the proposed budget can be found in the documents and presentations below, as well as on our 2020-2021 budget summary and FAQs page
