We are nearing the start of a new fiscal year, Sugar Land! And with that, budget workshop season comes to an end. But don’t worry! If you missed any of this year’s budget workshops — which covered topics from the City’s General Fund to other funds like Economic Development & Tourism — you have the chance to watch the full workshops below.
The focus of the proposed FY24 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 budget proposes a slight increase in the tax rate to 35 cents per $100 from 34.65 per $100 to implement projects approved by voters in the 2019 G.O. Bond. The proposed increase amounts to about $9 per month for the average Sugar Land home.
The goal is to balance investment in both operations and capital funding to increase our resiliency in FY24 and the future.
