"5. Reduce library funding. I love our library and am likely one of its most frequent patrons. However, our per capita spending is $48 compared to the $16 per person spent by the Blount County Library. Theirs is the only library servicing Maryville and Alcoa and is funded by all three municipalities. I propose we reduce our spending to that same level. Savings to taxpayer: $952,000 or 10.5 cents off the property tax rate.
6. Reduce the Recreation and Parks $3 million budget by 10 percent. In Fiscal Year 2013, the city of Maryville budgeted $1.4 million for both their library and parks departments. We’ve been spending that much on just our library. If my proposal is accepted, we’d still retain phenomenal services and assets while saving our taxpayers money. Savings to taxpayer: $300,000 or 3.33 cents off the property tax rate.
