City of Tucson Budget Town Hall


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

The City of Tucson FY 2014
Recommended Budget (.pdf) has been submitted to Mayor and Council. According to the City of Tucson:

  • The Budget is balanced, as required by law. With the direction of Mayor and Council, City staff is recommending
    closing a $15 million gap in the budget through debt refinancing, land
    sales and other measures.
  • There will be no cuts in Fiscal Year 2014 to services at Police, Fire,
    Transit, Parks and other departments despite rising costs.
  • The 2014 budget contains $20 million for the repair and resurfacing of
    city streets thanks to voter-approved Proposition 409. The Bond Program
    will allocate a total of $100 million over a 5 year period to improve
    road conditions. Work will include a variety of asphalt treatments and
    begins this July.
  • The City has re-established an Economic Development Office to focus on
    the recruitment, retention, and expansion of business, growing
    international trade, encouraging entrepreneurship, and investing in key
    commercial areas.
  • Most City workers will receive a 55 cent increase in wages and some
    employees will see a reduction in their pension contribution rate in the
    new fiscal year.

Tucson City Council Member Steve Kozachik will be holding a Town Hall on the FY 2014 Proposed Budget on Monday May 13, 2013. Please RSVP.
