My Spokane Budget Proposal - 2019

Show us your budget

Thank you for visiting MySpokaneBudget.org. The 2019 Program Budget proposal directs critical resources to your priorities to deliver a high level of service. Our budget philosophy is to make sure city government remains affordable, accountable and aligned to citizen priorities as we build a safer, smarter, healthier Spokane, and we need your help.

The Program Budget below is a working draft. It represents a commitment to live within our means while providing affordable services, and includes integrated approaches whenever possible to make your investment go further.

Public safety, central to a safe, healthy and compassionate community, remains a top priority, as do integrated street improvements that are imperative to an innovative infrastructure. Finding a place for everyone to call home and connecting them to the supportive services to keep them there is also critical to the well-being of our community.

Next year’s budget will also continue the major investments in our river and place greater emphasis on leveraging Spokane’s significant urban edge. It will seek partnerships that improve service delivery and create a sense of place that delivers high livability returns.

Community engagement has guided this budget, and we still need your help. We invite additional feedback to the proposal as we continue to refine it over the next several weeks, discuss it with the City Council and ultimately provide a line-item budget for the City Council to adopt by the end of the year.

We are also looking for feedback to the 6-Year Capital Improvement Plan, which is available at right. It is the roadmap to larger strategic investments that help us deliver the best, most affordable City services.

Tell us what you think. The best outcomes are always driven by the best engagements.

Your budget is looking good, with a surplus of $0.
