Mayor David Condon announced a 2016 Program Budget proposal today that emphasizes meeting community priorities in public safety, streets, getting to a cleaner river faster, and jobs and economic growth.

The City will seek feedback over the next several weeks and continue discussions with the City Council to identify additional ways to deliver the best, most affordable services to the community. Important focus areas include:

  • Public safety to continue the double-digit crime reduction trend, invest in police and fire equipment and training, expanding innovative fire and emergency medical solutions
  • Street improvements, where the investment will increase to $46 million
  • Utility and infrastructure work that gets us to a cleaner river faster
  • Replenishing money set aside for emergencies and unforeseen opportunities
  • Catalytic investments in infrastructure and the community's workforce to create new jobs and economic opportunities

The Program Budget proposal is available by division and as a complete downloadable document. A build-your-own-budget tool is available at MySpokaneBudget.org. Feedback can be submitted directly from MySpokaneBudget.org or by email to budget@spokanecity.org.
