Mayor Rogero Shares Commitment, Vision in 2013-14 Budget
April 26, 2013 - Mayor Madeline Rogero today proposed a budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year with no property tax increase and significant new investments in City infrastructure. The net proposed City budget is $295.8 million, with the General Fund making up about $183.2 million. That amounts to a 1.45 percent increase in the General Fund from the adopted 2012-13 budget.
"This budget is not ultimately about finances. It's really about a vision for our city - how we will grow, what services we will provide, and what quality of life we all will enjoy," Mayor Rogero said during her address at Ijams Nature Center. "The budget that I have presented today is balanced and affordable. It meets basic needs, and it positions us for greater opportunities." [NEWS RELEASE]
