Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Workshops

The Fiscal Year 2018 budget workshops will take place in the City Council Chambers located on the 3rd floor of the Municipal Center West, 300 S. Seventh Street beginning January 10. The 2017 Fiscal Year concludes February 28 and will reflect the first revenue downturn since the Great Recession. The City saw a drop in revenue of nearly $2M. Consumer spending and lack of a state budget affected the 2017 revenues. As a comparison, FY 2016 revenues were $118M while FY 2017 revenues are projected at $116M.

Consequently, the Corporate Fund FY 2018 budget includes diverse revenue enhancements to maintain the City’s level of service. The Corporate Fund, that includes the Police and Fire Departments, Public Works and general city services, is the fund that will be highlighted and most discussed during the workshops. Thirty-eight funds make up the remaining City of Springfield budget. These funds are dedicated to specific items not associated with day-to-day operations. For example, Motor Fuel Tax dedicates $17M for city road maintenance and TIF Funds are specifically earmarked for designated areas.

The budget workshops will be broadcast live on the city’s cable station - channel 18. For the complete list of dates and time, please visit our City calendar.
