Transmittal Letter

Honorable Mayor, Members of the Council, and City Residents,

We are pleased to present the Adopted Budget for Fiscal Year 2022 - 2023. The Budget is balanced and continues to provide high-quality services to City residents and maintains a strong General Fund unassigned reserve balance. Because of its sound financial position, the City has been able to weather the COVID-19 pandemic through fiscal year 2022. This strong position is due to the pro-active financial management by City Council and continued strong growth and development within the City.

The preparation of the Budget was a formidable task that would not have been possible without the combined efforts of all City department heads and staff. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all their collective efforts!

If you have any questions concerning the proposed budget, please do not hesitate to contact me so we may schedule a meeting at your convenience to discuss any issues.


Ron Ferris,

City Manager


The Budget is submitted pursuant to Article VI, Section 6-1(c) (2) of the Charter of the City of Palm Beach Gardens (“City”), and, as the City’s financial and spending plan for the year, is undoubtedly the single most important action taken by the City of Palm Beach Gardens City Council (“Council”) each year. It authorizes the resources to be allocated and establishes a plan and direction for the City’s programs and services for the coming year.
