BOISE — Boiseans may take a hit on their city budget for fiscal 2023.
The City of Boise will receive an update on its proposed budget on March 29 at 9:00 a.m.
According to a press release, Boise Mayor Lauren McLean hopes she will respond to city growth and inflation while supporting essential services like housing.
“The people of Boise need us to keep our community safe, provide transportation, support a strong economy, take decisive climate action and help make housing affordable. We will do all of that while being good stewards of their tax dollars,” said Mayor Lauren McLean. “I have directed the staff to draw up the budget to provide much-needed assistance to our residents. Thanks to the recent passage of a bill through the Legislature, we can now provide property tax refund checks to homeowners under the Circuit Breaker program. I’m also asking staff to study the implications of levying less than the 3% maximum in property taxes. These are just two examples of what we are already doing while we explore more ways to help our community.”
On the evening of March 29, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. in the library, the general public can then have a say in the budget proposal! at Hillcrest (5246 W. Overland Rd) during their Budget Interactive session.
The City of Boise wants to hear from residents about their budget priorities.
By attending, you’ll get an overview of the city’s budget, insight into the budgeting process, and direct feedback to the mayor and city council.
Here you can register in person or virtually.
