New City Budget Passes Unanimously, No Property Tax Increase

Posted 06-28-18.

The City of Sevierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen have unanimously passed the FY 2019 budget, which begins July 1, 2018. Numerous public meetings and workshops were held to discuss the budget and included many comments from residents. Much of the discussion concerned the need to address upcoming debt payments pertaining to Tourist Development Zone bonds. These bonds were issued to pay for significant infrastructure improvements for the purpose of increasing tourist related revenue. Infrastructure improvements include the Convention Center, Golf Course, Downtown Parking Lot, improvements to Old Knoxville Highway, and others.

The Board and City staff worked together and received tremendous public input on how to meet this challenge without decreasing City services. The FY 2019 budget maintains all City services, maintains the current property tax rate, and sets a framework for addressing the TDZ debt now and in the future.
