The city of Gainesville’s proposed budget for the next fiscal year will be available on May 30 for public review.

The new fiscal year begins July 1, and the Gainesville City Council will vote on the budget and millage rate on June 18.

While the full proposed budget has not been released, a new city-produced video highlights some priorities for Fiscal Year 2020, including transportation projects to alleviate traffic, a rebuilt Fire Station No. 2 and additional police patrols.

On May 30, City Manager Bryan Lackey will present the proposed budget to the Council at the Council’s scheduled work session, which is open to the public. The budget will also go online that day and be available to view at the City of Gainesville Administration Building at 300 Henry Ward Way.
