2019-20 Proposed Budget

2019-20 Proposed Budget

The City of Seattle’s 2019-2020 Proposed Budget is the first of Mayor Jenny A. Durkan’s administration.  The total proposed appropriations are approximately $5.9 billion per year, including about $1.3 billion in General Fund spending per year.  The City operates on a biennial budget, with a two-year spending proposal developed every other year. Seattle continues to enjoy a period of significant economic vitality and growth.  This economic strength has helped grow City resources, but also created challenges in both managing the pace of growth and addressing the disparities in opportunity that have characterized recovery from the Great Recession at a national and regional level.
