Anaheim’s budget: what makes our city go

Your City Budget

It’s budget time in Anaheim!

Now, before your eyes glaze over, remember Anaheim’s budget impacts just about everything you do in the city.

What’s in Anaheim’s budget?

  • 600 police officers and firefighters who respond in our time of need.
  • 57 parks where kids play sports, families celebrate birthdays and music lovers enjoy concerts.
  • Ten community centers providing recreation, classes, homework help and assistance finding a job.
  • Eight libraries that help kids learn and serve as meeting places for the community.
  • Our electric and water utility, which provides service to 120,000 households, nearly 20,000 businesses and 25 million annual visitors.
  • Road improvements including new pavement, slurry, sidewalks and pothole repair.

There’s a lot more in Anaheim’s budget. But you get the picture: Anaheim’s budget makes your city what it is!

We are just starting to put together the budget for the 12 months through June 2018.

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

So from May through mid-June, we’ll be seeking community input on the budget at neighborhood meetings and workshops at City Hall.

You can share your thoughts on the budget by joining us for a meeting, or by visiting our website at or by emailing us at
