City Manager Introduces 2017/18 Budget to City Council


On Monday, January 9, Batavia city management unveiled the FY 18 budget with an overview presentation to City Council.  For the first time, the budget is built around a single 5-year goal to realize $100 million of investment in the City in the next five years.  To put this in perspective, the City Manager said there had been almost this amount invested over the past decade, so management is actually suggesting the City DOUBLE its speed of investment.  The budget introduced four priorities to achieve that goal:  FOCUS on growth, Organizational Excellence, Neighborhood Investment and BIG Collaborative Projects.
