Phoenix City Council Approves FY 2021-22 Budget by Vote of 6 to 3https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/budget-and-research/1913Budget & Research5/19/2021 3:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1913/Downtown_Phoenix_from_32nd_St_and_Lincoln_StQgIaCBCQAGjCrM7_WUvEp.jpgPhoenix City Council Approves FY 2021-22 Budget by Vote of 6 to 3<div class="ExternalClassCBADC58B1F3D4DC9BA560004A544A6A6"><html> <p></p>Today, the Phoenix City Council approved the city of Phoenix budget for fiscal year 2021-22 by a vote of 6 to 3. This budget incorporates Council and community priorities following an extensive resident engagement process, including 14 virtual budget hearings, two in Spanish. The city received more than 1,000 public comments during the live hearings and via the FundPHX interactive tool.<br><br>“This budget sets a clear path forward for the city by investing in important police reform, compensation to attract and retain quality employees, heat resiliency to protect our most vulnerable residents, and many other valued community needs the City Council and residents asked for," said Phoenix City Manager Ed Zuercher.<br><br>The approved budget includes seven focus areas: Negotiated Employee Compensation Increases (Ongoing and One-time) - $118.3 million; Public Safety Reform & Responsiveness - $20.5 million; COVID Relief & Resiliency - $2.6 million; Climate Change & Heat Readiness - $2.8 million; Affordable Housing & Homelessness - $2.8 million; Building Community & Responding to Growth - $4.7 million; and Administrative Accountability - $3.1 million.<br><br>Changes to the original Trial Budget, informed by resident feedback, include funding to: build and maintain three new neighborhood parks in the southwest Phoenix area; maintain the Highline Canal; provide additional staffing for the Pueblo Grande Museum; advance the Phoenix Fast-Track Cities initiative to help end HIV by 2030; create the position of Veterans Services Navigator; enhance the city's Adaptive Reuse Program to repurpose old buildings for new uses; hire staff to properly maintain city cemeteries, among other additions.<br><br>The general fund revised projected surplus for FY 2021-22 is $154.8 million. Due to the leadership of the City Council over the past year, it represents a remarkable turnaround from the budget of 2020-21, when the city instituted hiring freezes to prevent COVID-related deficits. The surplus is largely made up of $98 million in one-time funds and a newly revised $56.8 million in ongoing resources. One-time funds represent resources from the Council approved transfer of funding from the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to offset public safety salaries as permitted by the Federal guidelines. Ongoing resources represent primarily anticipated growth in revenues for next fiscal year. <br><br>The next steps include the legally-required budget adoption process, with the 2021-22 Tentative Budget Adoption scheduled on June 2, Final Budget Adoption on June 16, and Property Tax Levy Adoption on July 1. Additional information on the city's ongoing budget process for FY 2021-22 can be found at phoenix.gov/budget.<br><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/budgetNewsbudget-and-researchBudgetBudgetMichael Hammett, Int.
