FY2017 Budget Process
On June 30, 2016, the FY2017 budget was approved by the Board of Aldermen (BOA).
The Ways and Means Committee of the BOA held public hearings on each segment of the proposed budget during May and June. The BOA may reduce the amount of any item in a budget bill, except amounts fixed by statute or ordinance obligations. The BOA may not increase any appropriation amount nor insert new items unless specifically approved by the Board of Estimate and Apportionment (E&A). Ways and Means submitted a list of proposed changes to the Board of E&A for its consideration on June 15, 2016. After E&A approval, the proposed budget was then reviewed and considered by the entire BOA. It was approved by the entire BOA on June 30, 2016 and went into effect on July 1, 2016.
