Show Us the Money: Tucson City Council Set To Debate $1.3 Billion Budget

Posted By on Tue, Apr 21, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Interim City Manager Martha Durkin has delivered a $1.368 billion proposed budget to the Tucson City Council for review at today's meeting.

That’s a bump of $103 million from the current budget of $1.265 billion.

Most of that increase—close to $80 million—will be in the form of spending on big-ticket capital projects, with city staffing levels remaining flat.

The cops, firefighters and the justice system are responsible for roughly $13 million of the increased budget costs.

The City Council will continue discussing the budget at its May 5 meeting, with adoption of a tentative budget scheduled for May 19 and a June 9 public hearing before a final adoption of the budget.
