The 2016-17 budgeted revenues total $69.1 million and include the following major components for the governmental fund types:

  • Local Property Tax – 22%
  • Federal Aids/Grants – 16%
  • Tuition and Fees – 12%
  • State Aids/Grants – 34%
  • Debt Proceeds – 8%
  • Institutional Revenues – 8%

As noted, the State Aids revenue represents the major source of support for the general operation and capital needs of Moraine ParkĀ for 2016-17. In 2014-15, Governor Walker utilized excess state revenues to “buy down” the taxing authority within the Wisconsin Technical College System. As such, the total Moraine Park tax levy for 2014-15 was reduced by $20.4 million and budgeted as additional state aids. The following table documents related trend data:
