Fiscal 2017 Agency Detail Available

Each Fiscal Year, the Bureau of the Budget and Management Research (BBMR) produces an Agency Detail book to provide service-level information on recommended funding levels for the upcoming Fiscal Year. 

The Fiscal 2017 Board of Estimates’ budget recommendations represent another step toward fiscal sustainability, and shows the difficulty of balancing budgets at a time of sluggish economic growth and ever-increasing costs and service demands. In the context of a $60 million General Fund shortfall, this budget plan continues a shift to a smaller but smarter police force, makes investments to reduce crime in the long-term, boosts school funding, fixes the finances of the Charm City Circulator, and provides additional property tax relief for homeowners. 

The budget plan – a $2.6 billion Operating Budget and a $524 million Capital Budget – maintains most city services at current levels. 

The recommended books are available here:

Fiscal 2017 Agency Detail Volume 1
