Urbana Mayor Diane Marlin’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2019 includes significant steps to lay a sound foundation for the City’s future. The proposed budget is available at https://www.urbanaillinois.us/departments/finance/financial-reports/annual-budget.

“Our staff is committed to providing excellent core City services, despite tighter budgets. However, we must make thoughtful and strategic decisions to address our long-term funding needs,” said Mayor Marlin. The budget includes $45.8 million in expenditures and $43.6 million in revenues for all City funds. Expenditures exceed revenues primarily because of large one-time expenditures in capital improvement funds.
