When they return, the City’s budget will be front and center.

The public hearing on the City’s proposed $1.1 million comes back to the council on June 3.

The City Council will hear any proposed changes suggested by committees when the public hearing reconvenes.

The proposed budget, which represents a slight decrease from the previous year’s $1.2 billion, emphasizes the importance of delivering a wide array of services and programs to Pasadena’s diverse community.

In his transmittal letter to the Mayor and City Council, Márquez highlighted the city’s commitment to providing essential amenities and services that cater to the needs of residents across all age groups and lifestyles.

“The City of Pasadena takes great pride in offering a robust range of programs and initiatives, either directly or through strategic partnerships with local organizations,” he wrote.

The proposed budget allocates significant resources to key departments crucial for maintaining the city’s infrastructure and public safety.

Pasadena Water and Power, the city’s utility provider, tops the list with a departmental budget of $345,312,250. The Police Department follows closely with a proposed budget of $111,078,762, reflecting the city’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of its residents.

The budget proposal includes funding for 1,080.27 full-time equivalent (FTE) positions in the General Fund and 2,403.38 FTEs across all Funds, as outlined in the Agenda Report.
