It closes a previously estimated $216 million deficit and includes no employee furloughs or layoffs; provides a Reserve Fund of greater than five percent of general fund receipts; and dedicates a modest surplus, made up primarily of one-time revenues, towards critical infrastructure needs previously deferred due to the economic crisis.
The proposed budget now goes before the City Council for approval. Please refer to the Budget Message from the Mayor to City Council, the Proposed FY 2013-2014 Budget Fast Facts and Highlights, and the Mayor's proposed budget documents linked below.
