Each municipality in the state of Kansas is required to develop a budget for the upcoming year. The budget establishes the mill levy to be assessed for the following year, as well as establishing expenditure limits on certain funds. The budget may be amended prior to the end of the budget year, but the mill levy, once established, cannot be changed.
Kansas statutes require the budget to be presented to the public for comment prior to adoption. That notice must occur prior to August 15 of each year and at least 10 days prior to the public comment period.
