The City’s 2021-2022 Proposed Biennial Budget is $3.7 billion, of which $505 million is allocated to the General Fund. 

Subsequent to the initial proposal of the budget, adjustments were made incorporating Council feedback in the areas of Library services, neighborhood planning, downtown retail support, and opioid support. The Council is also reviewing adjustments related to Fire services and basic life support.
