2017 Budget Process


The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department (SLMPD) operates under a cooperative policing arrangement between the cities of Excelsior, Greenwood, Shorewood and Tonka Bay. The SLMPD is dependent on these member cities for the majority of its revenue for operating and capital expenses. The deadline for adopting an operating budget for the following year is September 1st of the current year. In order to meet this timeline, the process needs to commence well in advance so that the chief of police (administrator) along with staff can develop a budget proposal for the SLMPD governing board (Coordinating Committee) to consider and pass along to the member city councils for consideration.

The following is the 2017 Proposed Budget which was presented at the July 13th Quarterly Meeting
