The 2017 Mayor’s Estimate was delivered to City Council on February 1, 2017. Mayor Frank G. Jackson then presented an overview of the budget to City managers. He started by thanking City employees for supporting issue 32, the half of a percent income tax increase that is providing for this enhanced budget.
“This budget is built on providing enhanced City services to the residents of Cleveland,” said Mayor Jackson.
The City approaches every budget with three goals in mind to balancing the budget – it’s the law; delivering services – ensure Clevelanders have the services they deserve; and, maintaining employment – keeping City workers employed to care for their families.
Details on enhanced services are included in the 2017 Letter of Transmittal.
