Proposed budget introduced for next fiscal year

Budget Director Doug Dowler presented to the Council the proposed $1.377 billion budget for fiscal year 2018, which begins July 1. The $404.5 million General Fund, which pays for day-to-day operations, will be almost unchanged from the current fiscal year's amended budget. The total number of authorized and funded City staff positions will decrease by 16 to 4,644 under the proposed budget, the second straight year of staff reductions. Sales tax revenue is the City's primary source of operating funds, and receipts have declined compared to the same month the previous year in 18 of the last 19 months, including 12 in a row. Budget presentations will follow May 9, May 23 and June 6 as the Council convenes as the Finance Committee, with adoption set for June 13.
