City of San Diego Budget

As is often said, a budget is a values statement. Our priorities as a City are demonstrated by how we decide to spend the community’s money and the spending we choose to cut. This is true during times of abundance and even more accurate when times are tough.

Every year, Councilmembers send their priorities for projects and programs to the Mayor to be included in the proposed budget. Council President Sean Elo-Rivera wants to hear from residents, business owners and workers, and people with a stake in the success of District 9 about your funding priorities. City Council offices were required to submit budget priorities memos to the Mayor’s Office and Independent Budget Analyst at the end of September 2022. On Friday, January 13th, 2023, updated Council budget priority memos submitted to the Office of the Independent Budget Analyst. The Mayor released the FY24 Proposed Budget on Friday, April 14.
