Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren on Friday released her budget proposal for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
The nearly $540 million spending plan is 2.4% higher than last year’s budget.
It includes a property tax increase of just under $4.2 million. Warren says it wasn’t easy coming up with this budget, but she says it overall, is providing a balance between fiscal prudence and investment in the community.
“We are able to deliver a balanced budget that maintains services, uses appropriate fund balances, and applies efficiencies while relying on only a modest tax increase.”
