Tipp City Council considers 2023 budget


TIPP CITY — City Manager Tim Eggleston presents two ordinances on the 2023 annual operating budget during Monday night’s Tipp City Council Meeting.

The first ordinance Eggleston presented was an ordinance recommending for council to adopt the 2023 annual operating budget as it has been presented by the city manager and amended by City Council during previous council study sessions.

The second ordinance presented establishes specific appropriations for the 2023 annual operating budget. These two ordinances will be brought before the council for a second reading at the the Tipp City Council’s Dec. 19 regular session meeting.

The Tipp City Council also passed an ordinance, after a second reading, that amends and modifies the 2022 annual operating budget and approved a resolution to amend the contract with the Board of Trustees of Monroe Township during its meeting Monday evening.

The ordinance on council’s agenda for a second reading allows for the city to amend and modify the annual operating budget of 2022 to account for any various unanticipated events that might have occurred during the year. The ordinance was unanimously approved by the council and the budget will be modified to reflect the various charges of unanticipated events.

Resolution 49-22 was unanimously passed during the meeting and allows Eggleston to amend and ratify the three-year contract between Tipp City and Monrow Township for emergency and non-emergency services in the unincorporated areas of Monroe Township for reidents and non-residents. The contract is changing from a two-year contract to a three-year agreement. The contract was amended to add language that makes it clear that the city of Tipp City does provide fire inspections in the township and that the city fire code official will be inspecting properties. The resolution was sponsored by Mayor Mike McFarland and seconded by Councilwoman Joanna Pittenger.
