Miamisburg budget surplus fueled by income tax money


Miamisburg expects to start next year with a city budget surplus of more than $700,000 and spend more on capital improvements than earlier projected.

City revenues in 2016 outpaced spending by $231,000, fueled by more income tax dollars that make up two-thirds of Miamisburg’s general fund revenue, records show.

That will help the city spend nearly $220,000 more than it had estimated next year on investment projects, according to city records.

Next month the Miamisburg City Council is expected to vote on a $19.8 million general fund budget that includes $2.3 million in capital projects.
