City Manager Mike Goodrum recently submitted a proposed $353 million budget for fiscal year 2024 that includes $288 million for operations and $65 million for capital projects.
The focus of the budget is an investment in priorities and services that provide high value to the Sugar Land community, including public safety, redevelopment, data-based decision making and a championship workforce. This budget further establishes the City’s leadership in conservative, resilient and responsible stewardship through strategic investment in priority areas. The goal is to balance investment in both operations and capital funding to increase our resiliency in FY24 and the future.
The proposed budget will be reviewed with City Council through a series of public workshops in August, culminating in a public hearing on August 15, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. at Sugar Land City Hall. These workshops are a great way to get involved with your local government by providing feedback on the City’s priorities and goals! Residents can attend the meetings at Sugar Land City Hall or watch via SLTV16 or the City’s Youtube channel.
