Proposed 2018-19 Fiscal Year Budget

The 2018-19 budget process is in full swing and City leaders want your input!

The Council is currently reviewing the Mayor’s recommended budget for 2018-19, which includes spending new funding from an increase in sales taxes. In addition to reviewing the overall City budget, the Council will also review budgets for the Redevelopment Agency, the Local Building Authority, City Library, Airport, and Public Utilities (storm water, sewer and water services).

Several budget discussions – all of which are open to the public, will be held every Tuesday through mid-June when the final budget is adopted. Weigh in on the proposed budget at the next public hearing on June 5 at 7 p.m. in room 315 of the City & County Building.

“Funding Our Future” next steps: participate in the annual City budget process

On May 1, the Council adopted a supplemental sales and use tax, which will increase Salt Lake City’s portion of sales tax by 0.5 percent, equal to 5 cents on a $10 purchase. The tax excludes groceries and large purchases like vehicles.

Revenue could be used for City services and projects including but not limited to: streets maintenance, road reconstruction projects and other infrastructure needs, transit, public safety and affordable housing.

The Council will deliberate how much revenue to allocate to each priority in conjunction with their annual budget discussions.
