Look For Special Notice For Riverview Residents

To best serve the needs of the entire community, the City of Riverview is conducting a survey this month to gauge the interests of residents regarding the proposed expansion of the Riverview Land Preserve.

RLP's Contribution to Riverview's Budget

RLP currently contributes $3.5 million in revenue to the City of Riverview annually, making up approximately one-fourth of the City’s general fund budget which helps to support police, fire and other public services. The $3.5 million contribution to the general fund is equivalent to approximately 11 mills of property tax levy, which otherwise would need to be placed upon property owners’ tax bills to sustain the current level of city services.
