City Council adopts 2018 budget

The Brighton City Council adopted the 2018 budget by an 8-0 vote at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. One council member was absent from the meeting. The vote approved $99,047,975 in all the operating, capital, utility (water, wastewater and storm drainage) funds and non-major funds. The adopted budget includes an approximate $1.5 million decrease from the 2017 adopted budget of $100.5 million.

The 2018 budget, which runs from January to December 2018, will focus on the commitment to find ways to align our recurring revenues with our recurring expenditures.  As the City of Brighton continues to grow, we must rise to the challenge of providing core services to our community that includes public safety, accessible and safe transportation options, beautiful parks, recreational facilities for all ages, high-quality and dependable water, building safety measures and a number of amenities that our residents, businesses, and visitors have come to expect from their local government. 

The City Council was able to balance the 2018 budget while maintaining the required City reserve fund of 28 percent. The City Council also approved a 6.650 property tax mill levy, which remains unchanged from the prior year. The property tax mill levy has remained static since 2003.
