FY2013-14 & FY2014-15 Capital Budget

On June 25, 2013 the Board of Supervisors approved the FY2013-14 & FY2014-15 two-year budget, which includes $445 million* for funding critical infrastructure for both General Fund and Enterprise departments. This includes the FY14 & FY15 budgets for General Fund Departments and the FY14 budget for enterprise departments, which are on a fixed two-year budget. The total does not include the PUC capital budget, which was passed as a supplemental ordinance rather than through the Annual Appropriation Ordinance (AAO). For a more detailed view of the two-year capital budget please refer to the General Fund Capital Budget and the Enterprise Capital Budget. Please click here for a copy of the budget presentation at the Capital Planning Committee.

*Note: FY14 & FY15 budget amounts are subject to change until Mayor Edwin Lee signs the budget August 1, 2013.
