Mayor Walsh Statement on Common Council’s Unanimous Approval of FY 2022-23 City Budget

Statement by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh on Common Council review of FY 2022-23 city budget: 

“This budget keeps us on the path to a stronger Syracuse. I thank the Common Council for its thoughtful review and action today. I am pleased to see a budget moving forward that will make major new investments in schools, public safety, parks, neighborhood quality of life and improving sanitation and litter pickup. Through good financial management and collaboration at the local, state and federal level, Syracuse continues to maneuver a challenging era while remaining in a sound fiscal state. The City is also experiencing investment and growth, which is creating additional revenue without increasing property tax rates. This budget allows us to maintain investments in crucial city services for residents, address strengthening our neighborhoods and families, and retain a resilient city workforce.”
