WELCOME TO THE CITY OF AUSTIN 2022 BUDGET ENGAGEMENT!

The Austin City Manager’s Proposed Budget for the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 would maintain high-quality services and invest in critical infrastructure while utilizing the smallest increase in tax and fees in the past five years.

Spencer Cronk, who
presented his recommendations to City Council on July 9, 2021, at Community First! Village Unity Hall in East Austin, said while this was “a time of unprecedented challenge in our community, across our country, and around the world,” the City was able to propose a budget that:

  • Continues to deliver core services and programs at current levels.
  • Implements critical reforms that residents and Council have prioritized.
  • Ensures minimal year-over-year impact on Austinites with tax and fee increases kept below 1% for the typical tax and rate payer.
  • Achieves the Council's policy of keeping the equivalent of 14% of annual General Fund requirements in reserve.

The City is committed to an inclusive and transparent budget development process that utilizes resident and stakeholder feedback to ensure budget priorities are being met.
