Elk Grove to Unveil 2017 Proposed Budget at Tomorrow's City Council Meeting

With fiscal year 2016 ending on June 30, 2016, the City of Elk Grove's executive team head by City Manager Laura Gill is set to unveil its proposed budget at tomorrow night's City Council meeting.

By law, California municipalities are required to adapt a balanced budget for fiscal year 2017, which starts on July 1, 2016, no later than June 30, 2016. According to the staff report for the agenda item, the budget could be adopted as early as the Council's next meeting on June 8.

Following the cuts during the Great Recession fiscal years, the city's budget has grown modestly which included salary increases for several categories of unrepresented employees. The largest budget item for the city has been police services which consumes about 60-percent of expenditures.

Tomorrow night's meeting is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. at Elk Grove City Hall.
