  • $8 million for Downtown Water Street Improvements
  • $2 million budgeted for numerous one-time capital improvements at eight area parks
  • $4.5 million for new Gulf Beach Area facility to include restrooms, storage, and parking
  • Funding for an emergency generator at La Retama Central Library and capital improvements at two library branches
  • Funding for Phase 1 of 3 for the Health Department Building renovation project
  • $47-million investment in O.N. Stevens Water Treatment Plant in FY 2023 and $187-million investment over the next three years
  • $49 million in funding for replacement and repairs of water lines citywide
  • $39 million in funding for capital improvements at all six Wastewater Treatment Plants and $157-million investment over the next three years

As part of the FY 2023 budget process, council members and city staff hosted community meetings for the fourth year in each of the five City Council districts. Resident input was instrumental in finalizing the budget. Several changes were made due to these community meetings, including funding for improvements at Salinas Park, additional funding for art projects, and funds allocated for North Beach Drainage improvements.
