City of Miami Releases FY 2019-20 Proposed Budget

Published on July 03, 2019


(Miami, FL, July 3, 2019) - The City of Miami today released its proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2019-20. The $1.130 billion Proposed Operating Budget is balanced and includes a property tax rate reduction, puts more law enforcement officers on patrol and includes a new groundskeeping crew to further maintain and beautify the City's parks. 

“This proposed budget reflects our ongoing efforts to enhance our residents’ lives,” said Miami Mayor Francis Suarez. “Centered on our three principle objectives to make Miami even more resilient, improve our residents’ quality of life, and create a pathway to prosperity for every Miamian, this is a budget built for a brighter future. By exercising a disciplined, collaborative, and comprehensive approach, this budget allows us to put our plans to action, tackle our challenges head on, and ensure that Miami remains a vibrant hub of hope for all who call our city home.”

The budget also sets objectives for the upcoming fiscal year.

"Our budget proposal for the coming fiscal year reinforces our focus on delivering efficient, effective services to our taxpaying patrons, and is actually smaller than the current year's Amended Budget, when all funds are counted," said City Manager Emilio Gonzalez. "From resilience, to our growing use of technology, to public safety and parks, this budget plan meets the needs of our residents."

The FY 2019-20 proposed budget will go before the City of Miami Commission in September.
