FY 2021-23 Budget Priorities

FY 2021-23 Proposed Policy Budget

As part of the biennial budget development process, the Mayor and City Council establish priorities based on the concerns and needs of the residents of Oakland. In compliance with the City’s policies on Budget Process, Fiscal Planning, Transparency, and Public Participation, the City conducted a priority setting process for development of the FY 2021-23 budget that was informed by:


• A Council Budget Workshop;

• Meetings with community groups, City staff, and other stakeholder groups;

• The results of a professional poll/survey with questions developed in conjunction with the City’s Budget Advisory Commission; and,

• Published top-five priorities from each City Councilmember.

BUDGET PRIORITIES POLL

The Budget Survey is conducted at the direction of the City’s Consolidated Fiscal Policy (CFP) and coordinated by the Budget Advisory Commission.

MAYOR'S PRIORITIES

Vision: Oakland is an equitable, resilient city where everyone thrives.

Budget Priorities

• Holistic Community Safety

• Housing, Economic & Cultural Security

• Vibrant, Sustainable Infrastructure

• Responsive, Trustworthy Government

Budget Values

In developing the FY 2021-23 Proposed Budget, we were guided by these values:


  1. Equity: Avoid reductions that would be felt disproportionately on low-income communities of color.
  2. Preservation of core services and staffing levels: Prevent cuts in service levels for residents and preserve staffing levels for City workers.
  3. Fiscal responsibility and long-term financial health: Address our current fiscal health while preparing to rebound once the economy recovers.
