Investment Fuels Action: Mayor Hodges’ 2018 Budget Adopted By City Council

Investments in combating climate change, housing, public safety, and community trust represent Minneapolis values

December 6, 2017 (MINNEAPOLIS) — The Minneapolis City Council this evening approved Mayor Hodges’ proposed 2018 budget, a budget rooted in the belief that investment fuels action. Among those investments in Minneapolis’ future—growing the City’s power to combat climate change, working to ensure that Minneapolis gets closer to the day when all our residents have a place to call home, and continued investment in public safety and public trust.

“I’m proud that the City Council has adopted my proposed budget largely intact, and I’m grateful for all of the work in departments across the city to arrive at a structurally sound budget that will help move Minneapolis forward,” said Mayor Hodges.

She continued, “As I look back at my time serving the people of Minneapolis—four years as Mayor, and eight years on the City Council before that—I do so knowing that I’m leaving the city in excellent financial shape, and on much firmer footing than it was 12 years ago. What future leaders choose to do with this legacy is up to them, but in my view, this is the firm foundation on which One Minneapolis can and must continue to be built.”

Highlights of the adopted 2018 budget include:

A Responsible, Balanced Tax Levy

The Mayor’s recommended property-tax levy, which the City Council also adopted, provides the resources to ensure that the City runs well, makes critical investments, and the continued implementation of the landmark, 20-year agreement to fund the infrastructure and operations of neighborhood parks and City streets.
