Peoria City Council Receives Proposed Budget

$455 million Budget is 15 Percent Less Than Previous Year


PEORIA, Ariz. (April 6, 2010) – The Peoria City Council received the proposed Fiscal Year 2011 Budget at a study session on Tuesday. The total proposed budget is $455 million, a 15 percent reduction from the previous fiscal year, but contains no cuts to core citizen services nor any increases to taxes, fees or utility rates.

“Peoria remains in strong financial shape,” said City Manager Carl Swenson. “Thanks to an organizational focus on improving efficiency, we have closed a $7.5 million gap between next fiscal year’s projected expenditures and revenues without significantly affecting any services to the community.”

Much of the savings is from a substantial reduction in the city workforce. The budget proposal reduces staffing by 59 positions, but only seven of those are currently filled. The city once again hopes to place those individuals elsewhere in the organization, similar to last year when 66 positions were eliminated, but only one employee was not offered a different position in the city.

No changes to the number of sworn police officers or fire fighters are proposed.

The proposed $455 million Fiscal Year 2011 budget comprises a $204.1 million operating budget, a $139.3 million capital improvement program, $57.4 million for debt service and a $54.2 million contingency appropriation.

Priority areas within the proposed budget include:

  • Neighborhoods: funding is included to continue the successful Neighborhood Pride and Neighborhood Grant programs, as well as for small capital projects that enhance neighborhood livability and several neighborhood park improvements;

  • Youth and Recreation: youth recreation and childcare programs will be maintained without increasing fees;

  • Economic Development: money to strengthen business attraction and retention efforts is included as is funding to advance the recent master plans for the Old Town and Sports Complex/Entertainment District areas;

  • Capital Improvements: thanks to aggressive pursuit of federal grants and regional funding for capital projects, Peoria has advanced construction of several key projects including Community Park Number Two (south of 83rd and Olive avenues) and the Agua Fria Truck Route.

The proposed budget will be reviewed in open study sessions by the Peoria City Council on April 22, April 25 and if needed, April 30. Each of those meetings will be at 4 p.m. in the Public Safety Administration Building Peoria Room (2nd floor), 8351 W. Cinnabar Avenue. The meetings will also stream live at www.peoriaaz.gov/channel11 and appear live on Peoria Channel 11.
