December 6, 2021
With the December 6, 2021 meeting in the books, Roseville City Council adopted the 2022 budget. The $58.1 million budget is supported by $24.8 million in property tax revenues and is the result of a months-long process that started in April, 2021.
City Manager Pat Trudgeon is pleased with the collaborative efforts involved in the creation of this year’s budget proposal.
“I appreciate the effort of the public and council for taking a look at this budget from a holistic perspective,” Trudgeon says. “It’s exciting to see how the budget aligns with what we’ve outlined for our city priorities… now it’s time to start ‘doing the work’ to make sure these funded priorities see action in 2022.”
• Investment in Maintaining City Programs and Workforce to cover inflationary costs - $729,304 levy increase
• Investment in infrastructure - $220,000 levy increase
• Investing in equity work to improve community outcomes - $126,000 levy increase
• New staffing impacts to include an Environmental Intern, Fire Cadet, and Communications reorganization - $91,250 levy increase
• Use of Federal ARPA funds to assist in community COVID recovery
• Strategic use of financial reserves
Even while meeting these priorities, the $58.1 million budget holds the line on spending and is a reduction from the 2022 total city budget. This reduction is due to the 2021 capital needs at the OVAL that aren’t replicated in 2022 and for the cost savings associated with moving IT Metro-INET functions to a separate entity in 2022.
The median valued home of $296,500 will see an increase of $5.38 per month in city property taxes – or $64.56 annual increase. The majority of this increase is due to the 5.7% increase in the median valuation of homes set by the Ramsey County Assessor.

The City of Roseville City Council will review the budget in two more upcoming meetings:
The $58.1 million preliminary budget approved in September holds the line on spending and is a decrease of $4.5 million. The decrease is a result of almost $5 million programmed in 2021 for renovations at the Oval and the removal of the IT Metro-INET functions which will become a separate entity in 2022. When 2021 is adjusted to account for these two items, the actual net budget is increased by $1.5 million.

City Manager Patrick Trudgeon's 2022 preliminary budget recommendation was delivered to the City Council on August 23. Continuing to be mindful of the financial difficulties and economic recovery needed in the continued COVID-19 pandemic, the $58.1 million budget presented by Trudgeon maintains city programs and services, while continuing to provide funds for maintaining critical community assets and investing in better community outcomes.
Ensuring sustainable funding for Roseville's assets and infrastructure has been a primary goal for the City council over the last 10 years. The 2022 preliminary budget provides additional funds to several capital asset funds to continue this work and ensure funding for city equipment and infrastructure for the next 20 years.
The preliminary budget provides resources for the city to better engage the residents and businesses to lead to better community outcomes. These resources include funding for outreach and community events, community forums, providing translation services and staff training on community engagement principles and diversity, equity, and inclusion topics.
The preliminary budget also includes Federal American Rescue Plan Act funds to cover the costs of an embedded Ramsey County Social Worker in the Roseville Police Department to provide for an alternative response model in interactions with persons in crisis.

Under the preliminary budget, a median-valued Roseville single-familyi home, now valued at $296,500, will see an increase of $5.63 per month or $67.56 per year in city taxes paid.
A preliminary budget, sometimes referred to as a recommended budget, is a balanced budget presented to the City Council by the City Manager. It is a starting point from which council members work to arrive at a final budget for the following fiscal year. The final vote on adoption of Roseville's 2022 budget will take place in December.
Roseville's budget is comprised of tax-supported and non-tax supported items. Tax-supported revenue is primarily derived from property taxes, with no-tax supported revenue coming from sources like fees for services and user charges, intergovernmental transfers and other sources such as investments, assessments and franchise fees.
Roseville commercial and residential property owners will combine to contribute about $24.8 million or 43% of the city's 2022 budget. That is an increase of just over $1 million compared to 2021.
Did you know that only about a quarter of the typical Roseville residential property tax bill goes to the City of Roseville? In 2021, the city's portion of a typical Roseville homeowner's tax bill was 26 percent of the total property tax bill. The remaining portion of taxes paid went to Ramsey County (36 percent), school districts (34 to 35 percent) and other taxing districts like the Metropolitan Council and Watershed Districts (3 to 4 percent).
The preliminary budget proposes an increase in residential single-family property taxes of about $5.63 per month for the median Roseville home valued at $296,500, yielding a median monthly tax bill of $98.75.
The City Council is required by state statute to adopt the preliminary budget and tax levy for 2022 by the end of September. Once the preliminary levy is adopted, it can be lowered in the final version of the budget, but not increased. The Council is expected to consider adoption of the 2022 preliminary budget and tax levy at is September 27 meeting.
Now that the 2022 preliminary budget has been presented, the City Council would like to hear from you. Does the recommended budget represent your priorities for Roseville? If not, are there areas of the budget that you would like to see the city allocate more or fewer resources? What changes would you suggest?
