Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens released his proposed budget this week. The $790 million General Fund budget is the largest in the city’s history. Combined with the spending on aviation and watershed and other funds that do not qualify as a General Fund, the city spending adds up to nearly $2.5 billion.
“Our ability to invest so deeply in Atlanta is a testament to the City’s fiscal condition. Thanks to strong stewardship, we have accrued the highest reserves in City history and have achieved superior credit ratings,” said Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens. “Our commitment to strong fiscal stewardship continues with this budget. This balanced budget allows us to make all of these investments and more without proposing an increase to property tax millage rates.”
