The City of Augusta’s FY2022 Budget is a plan of the City’s financial operation using an estimate of proposed expenditures for the upcoming fiscal year and an estimate of proposed revenue to finance the expenditures. The result of the formal process by which the Augusta Commission approves this budget is called the Adopted Budget.
Resilient Augusta Community Budget Engagement Forums
For the first time in the City of Augusta’s history, City leaders hosted Resilient Augusta Community Budget Engagement Forums to give residents an opportunity to learn about the proposed 2022 budget, participate in interactive budget simulation activities, and give feedback on how money should be spent.
During the months of September and October, a total of four in-person community forums were held in various City districts. At each event, presentations were made by City Administrator Odie Donald, II and department leaders to highlight accomplishments made in their areas.
Results from the forums were used in consideration for the City’s proposed FY2022 budget.
