Mayor Miller presented the 2023 Budget Message at the October 10, 2022 City Council meeting.
It is my fiscal responsibility to continuously evaluate City revenue and expenditures with a view of maintaining a strong financial position while providing quality municipal services.
While we have weathered the pandemic in a solid position, enabling us to cash-flow our Access Anacortes Fiber project, we predict an uncertain economic climate in 2023. Inflation, recovering supply chains and likely recession has led us to prepare a conservative budget that we will closely monitor until a clearer fiscal picture emerges.
This budget reflects our unwavering commitment to serving each and every resident to the highest standard and protecting the strong fiscal position of the City. We commit to providing our front-line public safety professionals with the resources and tools they need in a challenging legal environment. We will continue to maintain and improve our public infrastructure and facilities – assuring that every resident enjoys the quality of life that is the hallmark of our community.
