The City Council approved the City Manager's Proposed Budget on May 21, 2013 (City Council Report, City Manager's message, updated schedules, and complete budget document) totaling $3.503 billion citywide, including $1.128 billion in the General Fund. The budget restores and enhances important community services such as police, fire, parks, libraries, street maintenance, bike lanes, after-school programs and others, reflecting the resident input received at 20 community budget hearings. On June 5, the City Council adopted the 2013-14 tentative budget ordinances and the 5-Year Capital Improvement Program. The Council is scheduled to adopt the final budget ordinances on June 19, 2013, and the property tax levy on July 3, 2013.
