On Monday, January 31, 2022 at 10a, members of Columbus City Council will present their revisions to the 2022 operating budget, originally proposed by Mayor Andrew J. Ginther on November 15, 2021.
City Council hosted eight hearings at the end of 2021 to review the proposal and collect feedback from residents. Aided by their input and the additional $9.4 million in carryover that became available at the end of 2021, City Council will be designating significant funding in the operating budget to further respond to community needs.
“The budget is the most consequential legislation that crosses our desks each year, and our residents’ engagement in the budget review process is what ensures city spending aligns with their needs,” said Finance Chair and President Pro Tempore Elizabeth Brown. “City Council's amendments to the budget represent the seven members' ongoing commitment to the recovery and resiliency of all Columbus families and all Columbus neighborhoods."
In light of COVID-19 concerns, residents are asked to view the presentation virtually. Media is welcome to attend in person with masks.
