The municipal council is forecasting an income surplus of CHF 20ʹ000 for 2023 and a reduced tax rate of 53% (previous year 55%).
The income statement for 2023 foresees expenses of CHF 23,672,900 and income of CHF 23,692,900, resulting in an income surplus of CHF 20,000. This budgeted surplus is based on the proposed reduced tax rate of 53%. Compared to the 2022 budget, expenses are CHF 1,690,800 higher, mainly due to extraordinary and one-off expenses for the one-off write-off of the centre planning as well as IT migration and the "Integrated Communication" project. In addition, personnel costs will also increase due to additional planned positions (notary's office, school secretary and communications specialist), individual increases in staffing levels and inflation. The 2023 budget also foresees an increase in income of CHF 1,668,800 compared to the previous year as a result of a slight increase in expected tax income and the higher expected income from property gains tax.
In 2023, investments of CHF 3.24 million are planned, of which CHF 1.02 million for the renovation of the Vorderbergstrasse (Dorfbach-Blimoos) and the Gerbiweg. In the area of drainage, a new construction and two renovations of sewage pipes amounting to CHF 1.04 million are planned. The investment bill also includes CHF 300,000 for the integration costs of restructuring the IT for the administration and expanding the network, CHF 200,000 for a replacement of the fire brigade's command vehicle, CHF 145,000 for a new municipal vehicle (postponed from 2022) and CHF 100,000 for the renovation of the landing stage (also postponed from 2022).
