My city budget: how you can tune in

budget

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 23, 2018) — It’s that time of year again when our city leaders discuss and ultimately decide how to spend your tax dollars.

The City Council has been holding public workshops on the proposed $1.7 billion city budget. The workshops have included presentations from each city department on spending plans for the coming fiscal year.

Like the state of California and other cities, Anaheim operates on a fiscal year, and ours runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.

Anaheim’s budget makes your city what it is, and these spending decisions have a big impact on the lives of our residents, businesses and visitors.

That’s why we make it easy for the public to follow along and get involved.

You can view each of the City Council workshop videos and presentations online:
