BDS’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2019-20 budget request continues to work its way through the City’s approval process. Our request included two Budget Directives from Mayor Wheeler seeking General Fund support for Land Use Services ($1.2 million) and for a strategic planning process for BDS and other City bureaus involved in development review ($60,000).
However, after reviewing our budget request, the City Budget Office (CBO) recommended that the City Council not approve the two Budget Directives but it was recommended that BDS and our partner bureaus split the cost and pay for the Development Review Strategic Plan work ourselves.
Remaining events in the FY 2019-20 budget process include:
- June 12 – City Council vote on Adopted Budget
- July 1 – FY 2019-20 Budget goes into effect
BDS fee schedules have been adopted and can more information can be seen here.
