2020 Calendar Year Budget Process
The Salt Lake Valley Law Enforcement Service Area (SLVLESA) funds law enforcement services for its members. Law enforcement services are provided by the Unified Police Department (UPD). SLVLESA revenues are derived from property taxes assessed within its jurisdiction.
UPD is a June 30-July 1 fiscal year entity. SLVLESA is on a calendar fiscal year. UPD passed its fiscal year 2019-2020 budget on June 20, 2019. Essentially, the cost for law enforcement services has been determined until June 2020.
Based on the UPD budget and other administrative costs, the Board of Trustees must prepare and adopt a budget for calendar year 2020 before the end of the year. It is anticipated that a tentative budget will be presented to the SLVLESA Board of Trustees on October 17, 2019. The Board of Trustees anticipates adopting the calendar year 2020 budget on December 19, 2019. Throughout the budget process, the Board of Trustees will consider SLVLESA’s revenue needs ensuring that its fund balance is stable and SLVLESA meets its obligations to UPD. Further, the Board of Trustees will consider capital and other needs as part of the budget process. If the Board of Trustees determines that it must budget increased revenues for calendar year 2020, SLVLESA will need to comply with the truth-in-taxation requirements provided in State law. This section will be updated as the budget process proceeds.
