How will the 2022 Minneapolis City Budget impact me? 

City Services

Departments like the Fire, Public Works, and Health Departments provide critical services to ensure the wellbeing of residents and maintenance of essential infrastructure like roads, utilities, safety, and more.

City Programs

The City operates numerous programs that are funded through the City budget. For example, things like small business support, housing subsidies, and youth programming are funded by the City's budget. 

Property Taxes

Only 25% of the City's budget comes from property taxes, with the rest coming from other sources. The Board of Estimate & Taxation has the authority to increase property taxes for residents. Last year, there was no increase to the percentage property owners had to pay in property taxes, because of COVID-19.

Over the last few months, City Departments have presented their proposed budgets to the City Council. You can watch the presentations here:
