2014 budgetThe Mayor released his proposed 2014 budget on Monday, September 23.

After a number of very difficult budget years requiring extensive cuts, there has been a measure of economic recovery. Some city revenue sources have come in above projection, but some have not. Overall, the city budget office estimates general budget revenue is up around $10 million, roughly 1% of the City’s General Fund.

The Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed budget on Thursday, October 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of city hall, at 600 4th Avenue between Cherry and James.
