The City of Los Angeles has an annual budget of about $12 billion. In a City of 4 million people, that works out to about $3,000 per resident. That money has to cover meeting the basic needs of running the City–like our police and fire departments, streets and sewers–as well as the cost of programs that make our City and our people thrive–like parks, libraries, economic development, youth and senior programs.
The Budget and Finance and Innovation (BFI) Committee, chaired by City Councilman Bob Blumenfield, will consider every detail of the budget and is asking for your input. Please complete the annual budget survey.
