On Friday Mayor Lovely Warren unveiled her annual operating budget for the City of Rochester.
The mayor’s office expects that city homeowners will see their bill lowered by $63.89 under Warren’s spending plan, a net decrease of $34.91. The proposed budget is $525,604,100, which is 1.3 percent higher than the 2016-17 budget of $515,842,400.
The budget focuses on jobs, safer neighborhoods, and educational opportunities. The city will also be investing in an additional police recruit class in the fall to maintain higher staffing during the following summer demand peak. Dollars are also earmarked to purchase new fire apparatus and continue school fire safety education.
“My budget was designed to keep faith with our residents by lowering the residential tax burden while continuing to invest in important programs and services,” said Mayor Warren.
