The 2018-19 budgeted revenues total $72.7 million and include the following major components for the governmental fund types:

  • Local Property Tax – 23%
  • Federal Aids/Grants – 13%
  • Tuition and Fees – 11%
  • State Aids/Grants – 37%
  • Debt Proceeds – 9%
  • Institutional Revenues – 7%

As noted, the State Aids revenue represents the major source of support for the general operation and capital needs of Moraine Park for 2018-19. 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:

  • Personnel Services – 49%
