Council takes a closer look at the city’s FY23 proposed budget during this week’s workshops

By Colin Killian, Public Communications Manager

The College Station City Council conducts workshops at noon on Monday and Tuesday to explore the city’s proposed FY 2022-23 budget. The sessions could extend into Wednesday if needed.

The budget workshops can be accessed through Zoom. Monday’s first session covers the general fund and capital funds. Tuesday’s workshop explores outside agency funding requests, enterprise (utility) funds, the hotel tax fund, and fee resolutions.

The proposal was presented to the council on July 12. Following public hearings on the budget (July 28) and tax rate (Aug. 11), the council could adopt both as early as Aug. 11. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1. (EDITOR’S NOTE (8/4): The tax rate pubic hearing and adoption for the tax rate and budget are now scheduled for the Aug. 25 council meeting).

We’ll post the presentations here each day as they are presented:



The entire budget was covered in two days, so a third workshop on Wednesday isn’t necessary.
