Infographic: FY 15-16 Budget Overview
The City of Dallas has proposed the FY 15-16 City Budget. This proposal coincides with 40 public meetings which provides citizens with the opportunity to offer feedback to City Council.
In a survey of residents last year, the City of Dallas asked citizens to share their priorities in addition to meeting with City Council to understand their vision for the future of Dallas. The City has responded with a balanced budget that invests in improving street conditions; code compliance and animal services; arts and libraries; technology to give citizens greater access to information; as well as, revitalizing neighborhoods throughout Dallas and continuing our commitment to Public Safety.
Throughout the budget process, the City was able to compile a list of 7 priorities for this year’s budget: Technology, Infrastructure, Code Compliance, Police Services, C.A.R.E, Efficiencies and Cost Reductions, and Neighborhoods. In addition, City Services, Workforce Impacts, Dallas Water Utilities and Sanitation Services were indicated as areas of importance.
We have come a long way in the past fiscal year and, as you will see, we have a lot of exciting opportunities to achieve even more for the City we love in FY 2015‐16.
