This past week, Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens announced his budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2024 which starts July 1.
At $2.5 billion, this would be the largest operating budget in Atlanta history.
$790M is in the General Fund–– which is the City’s principal operating fund and has the most flexibility on how it gets spent.
Other funds — such as those for the airport, water, and E-911 — have restrictions on where and how the money can be spent.
Each of the City’s department will meet with City Council regarding their proposed FY2024 operating budgets.
Departments will present their requests for operating funds included in the budget in the Council Chambers at City Hall. All sessions are open to the public (also broadcast on Channel 26 and livestreamed on the council’s social), but there is no public comment.BUDGET HEARINGS SCHEDULE + MORE INFO
