Proposed FY 2024 Budget

Development of the Proposed FY 2024 Budget included a thorough review of revenue and financial options to ensure that the use of available resources is maximized to serve the community while maintaining a good value to tax and rate payers and consistency with Council priorities.  The total Proposed FY 2024 Budget is $3.3 billion. The proposed budget is comprised of the annual operating budget and the FY 2024 – 2028 Capital Investment Plan (CIP). The annual operating budget reflects day-to-day operations, while the CIP represents large capital outlays over a five-year time horizon. A public hearing on the proposed budget is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., or as soon as practicable thereafter, on Monday, May 8, 2023. Members of the public who are interested in speaking during the public hearing may complete the Online Speaker Sign Up Form or call the City Clerk’s Office at 704.336.2248.
