Council Adopts Budget for Next 2 Years

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

As part of last night's City Council Meeting, the Council approved operating budgets for the next two fiscal years (the City's fiscal year starts on July 1st and ends June 30th).  The City's Budget is one of the most important documents the Council works on because it sets the Community's spending priorities for the next two years.  In this case, 2018/19 and 2019/20.  The Council is in their third year of putting together a Priority-Based Budget, which is based upon the 5 Council-adopted Community Results/Goals:

  • Safe Community - Residents and visitors will experience a sense of safety
  • Community Building - Brisbane will honor the rich diversity of our city (residents, organizations, businesses) through community engagement and participation
  • Ecological Sustainability - Brisbane will be a leader in setting policies and practicing service delivery innovations that promote ecological sustainability
  • Fiscally Prudent - Brisbane's fiscal vitality will reflect sound decisions which also speak to the values of the community
  • Economic Development - Brisbane will work with the businesses and residents to provide for economic vitality/diversity

To that end, below are a handful of projects that received funding:

  • Requests from the Parks and Recreation Commission - Firth Park Improvements (replace benches, tables, trash cans); Sunrise Room Improvements (paint, baseboard and carpet replacement, kitchen cabinet updates); Dropdown Screen for Mission Blue, Sound System Replacement at Mission Blue, Portable Sound System Replacement for Special Events
  • Capital Projects - Drainage Line Installed at the Fishing Pier, Alley Improvements (draw up plans for the Alvarado to San Benito Walkway as well as plans drawn for the Sierra Point to Humboldt Walkway), Station 81 Fire Engine Replacement

The Council had the lion's share of their budget discussions during the June 9th Budget Workshop.  The new 2018-20 Budget will be posted shortly here on the City's website.

Just after 3pm on Friday, June 22, crews responded to a second alarm grass fire east of Bayshore Blvd. near Tunnel Rd.  Due to quick action taken by the fire compaines, the fire was contained to 5 acres, with no damage to private or public property, nor injuries to firefighters or the public.  A Cal Fire copter remained on scene for any flare-ups while crews did extensive mop ups and constructed containment lines around the fire.  The fire is currently under investigation by the North County Fire Authority Fire Prevention Services Bureau.  Click here to read their press release.  We will post an update when a determination has been made as to the cause of the fire.
