The City of Sacramento has released its proposed budget for fiscal year 2021/22, which represents the City’s financial plan for the upcoming year starting July 1.
The budget totals $1.3 billion for operations and capital improvement projects. It supports 4,883 full-time positions and is balanced.
In his transmittal letter to the Mayor and City Council, City Manager Howard Chan said the City “still faces significant financial challenges” caused by the ongoing pandemic, but “remains cautiously optimistic about an impending economic recovery.”
“As Sacramento begins to emerge from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 pandemic, with more residents becoming vaccinated and the State of California and County of Sacramento further loosening restrictions on local business operations, tourism, conferences and events, we look forward to beginning the transition to post-pandemic life and City business,” Chan said.
The proposed budget is scheduled to go to the Budget and Audit Committee May 4 and then to the City Council for discussion May 18. Here is the full schedule of budget hearings:
