The City Council received the City Manager’s proposed budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year on April 30, 2013. The budget totals $1,027,852,482.
The General Fund budget, which pays for most day-to-day City services, is proposed at $400.8 million – a 0.6% percent increase from the 2012-2013 fiscal year budget.
Two very significant changes are proposed in the budget. The first is the addition of 40 new uniform Police positions. This will bring the number of uniform Police positions to 1,116. When combined with the 33 uniform positions added in the current year the net is a 7% increase in the number of uniform Police positions since FY 2011-2012.
Another significant change is the addition of $1.0 million to the Public Transportation program budget to enhance bus service in Oklahoma City. Consulting firm Nelson\Nygaard presented the preliminary results from a review of the current public transportation system on April 16, 2013. Included in their presentation were recommendations for improvement to the system within the current level of funding and a prioritized list of enhancements that require additional funding. When the recommendations are finalized and Council reviews the options available, the proposed budget contains $1.0 million to program the selected enhancements to transit service. This is equivalent to a 7.7% increase in Public Transportation funding next year.
Overall, the budget authorizes 4,580 positions, an increase of 51 positions or 1.1 percent. With 40 new positions in Police, the remaining position changes are minor. The most significant other changes include additions in the Utilities Department and Airports Department.
The Five-Year Forecast for 2014-18 was presented to the City Council at a workshop on February 12, 2013.

Agee Economic Research and Policy Institute at Oklahoma City University.
