Mayor Haslam Presents the Budget

May 1, 2008 - Mayor Bill Haslam presented a 2008-2009 City of Knoxville budget Thursday showing that the city is in good financial condition despite a difficult economic climate nationwide.

Mayor Haslam presents budget

The city’s budget includes funds to continue city services at current levels, escalates the city’s ongoing redevelopment efforts and unveils an ambitious plan to raise employee salaries to market rates in just three years – all without raising taxes or dipping into the city’s fund balance for operating money.

"Thanks to conservative, responsible budgeting, the hard work of our city employees, and some real growth in our city economy, this budget does not require a tax increase," Haslam told a crowd of about 700 gathered at the new SYSCO Distribution Center for the mayor’s annual budget luncheon.

The complete adopted annual operating budget is in this one PDF file below.

File is 22 MB in size.
