September 20, 2018 - Mayor Tom Henry today announced the City of Fort Wayne’s proposed budget for 2019 will continue the City Administration’s commitment to investing in public safety, neighborhood infrastructure and parks.
The balanced budget places an emphasis on providing essential services to residents, neighborhoods and businesses. The budget also positions Fort Wayne as a leader in job growth, economic development opportunities, a revitalized downtown, strong neighborhoods, and quality of life amenities that make our community a point of destination to live, work and play.
The property tax supported budget, also known as the Civil City budget, totals $173 million. This budget does not include Fort Wayne City Utilities, which has its own budget funded by ratepayers.
