Mayor Rogero Shares Commitment, Vision in 2013-14 Budget

Mayor Rogero presents the budget

April 26, 2013 - Mayor Madeline Rogero today proposed a budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year with no property tax increase and significant new investments in City infrastructure. The net proposed City budget is $295.8 million, with the General Fund making up about $183.2 million. That amounts to a 1.45 percent increase in the General Fund from the adopted 2012-13 budget.

"This budget is not ultimately about finances. It's really about a vision for our city - how we will grow, what services we will provide, and what quality of life we all will enjoy," Mayor Rogero said during her address at Ijams Nature Center. "The budget that I have presented today is balanced and affordable. It meets basic needs, and it positions us for greater opportunities."

Among the new spending proposed in the budget are several capital items: $15 million for a Public Works complex to replace the aging facilities on Loraine Street (design funding for this project was included in the 2012-13 budget); $10 million for improvements to the Knoxville Zoo; $5.2 million for demolition and improvements on property the state is conveying to the City at Lakeshore Park; and $1.2 million to redress chronic flooding problems on Prosser Road.

The final budget is in this PDF file below.
