It’s city budget time again!

Monday, July 19, 2021 by Tai Moses

Next week the city will hold the first of two community budget input meetings on Thursday, July 22, at 4 p.m at Austin City Hall – the first in-person City Council meeting since March 2020. The coming weeks will be laser-focused on community input and budget work sessions and residents are encouraged to get involved in the process. City Manager Spencer Cronk’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2021-22 would “maintain high-quality services and invest in critical infrastructure while utilizing the smallest increase in tax and fees in the past five years,” according to the budget summary. Sign up here to offer public comment at the meeting, either at City Hall or remotely via telephone. Council members will be reviewing and discussing amendments to the proposed budget before final adoption, which is scheduled for Aug. 11. Learn more about the budget process here.
