San Gabriel City Council adopted the City’s budget and fee schedule for fiscal year 2022-23 on June 7, 2022.
By News Desk
The budget totals $82.24 million in revenue and $81.41 million in expenditure – with approximately $69.98 million dedicated to the City’s operating budget and the remaining $11.43 million dedicated to capital improvement programs across the city. The capital improvements include streets, traffic signals, sewers, public facilities, and Mission Playhouse parking lot.
As the City continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City’s General Fund operating budget reflects a cautious economic growth, balanced with a slight surplus of $366,000. Revenues are projected at $46.61 million, which are expected to increase, and expenditures are projected at $46.25 million, reflecting the costs of sustainable and normal operations, including the City becoming fully staffed for the first time since the beginning of COVID-19.
By the end of fiscal year 2022-23, the City is projected to have 14.4% of unrestricted fund balance reserves, bringing the City closer to its goal of 17% in General Fund reserves.
Along with the budget, the Citywide Fee Schedule was adopted with a general increase, based on the January consumer price index of 7.5% for the Los Angeles region.
