Mayor Liccardo's 2017 June Budget Message

Mayor Sam Liccardo has released his June Budget Message, outlining his final recommendations for adopting a balanced budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year that begins July 1.

Through his June Budget Message, Mayor Liccardo has made his final recommendations for the FY 2017-18 budget, which charts a prudent and targeted approach to spending and focuses new investments on a few key priorities, including:

  • Funding critical Emergency Preparation and Flood Recovery efforts, that will help the City respond to impacts of the recent Coyote Creek floods and prevent future incidents in the future. This includes new recommendations in the June Budget Message to: hasten the development of multi-language disaster alert systems, Coyote Creek vegetation removal, and incentivizing landlords to renew the Rock Springs neighborhood.
  • Enhancing the City’s Road Repair and Maintenance program. Given the significant increase in funds available for this program, the City will pave approximately 250 miles next year – 3x the amount paved during Mayor’s Liccardo’s first year as mayor. The budget message also recommends maintaining this funding commitment for the next five years.
  • Advancing San Jose’s new #BeautifySJ campaign through measures, such as expanding the City’s illegal dumping rapid response team (to improve the average response time to 48 hours), enhancing street clean-up and landscaping on 30 major City corridors, and expanding neighborhood beautification days and the neighborhood beautification grant program to better
    leverage the energy of local residents.

While the FY 17-18 budget continues to make progress in the City’s goal to restore core services to its residents, Mayor Liccardo also cautioned that projected deficits on the horizon requires that the City remain disciplined in its budgeting in order to avoid painful decisions in the years ahead.
