City Manager's FY 2018 Budget Proposal 

The Proposed FY 2018 budget represents Norfolk’s commitment to making bold decisions while maintaining a structurally sound financial base. Resilience continues to be the lens through which we make decisions, strategically preparing Norfolk for the next century. 
The Proposed FY 2018 budget allows the city to plan for the future with funding for long-term housing and poverty strategies as well as ongoing flood mitigation strategies. It proposes investing in public safety resources and upgrading the public safety technology infrastructure. We continue our strong commitment to public schools. In FY 2018, the city’s total proposed operating support is $119 million, which is $65 million more than the state’s required local contribution. The city will also provide an estimated $18.3 million in in-kind support and funds to complete construction of our five new schools, maintenance and infrastructure projects. The Proposed FY 2018 budget allows the city to continue to provide excellent core services, grow the economy and set the table for bold moves to prepare us for the future.  

Following three budget work sessions, City Council is scheduled to vote on the City's FY 2018 Budget on May 23, 2017.
