The Buckeye City Council approved the 2021-2022 Fiscal Year budget at their regularly scheduled meeting on July 6.
The council adopted an approximately $392 million budget that focuses on what the city calls solid, long-term financial planning to ensure residents continue receiving the quality services they expect now and in the future.
The strategy for this year’s budget is to use conservative revenue estimates, ensure the general fund is balanced, maintain adequate funds in our reserves, provide for contingencies and continue investing in Buckeye’s future with new facilities and infrastructure.
The Jackie A. Meck Water Campus remains the biggest capital project in the city’s history and is nearly 80% percent complete, according to the city. Other infrastructure projects include improvements at the Buckeye Municipal Airport, expansion projects at Sundance Park, the Aquatic Center, the Senior Center kitchen and the Jackrabbit Trail Park and Ride.
In addition, the Community Services Department is expanding several programs to meet the needs of the growing city.
