On August 1, 2016 Mayor Edwin M. Lee signed the City’s two-year budget for the fiscal years 2016-17 and 2017-18, with unanimous approval from the Board of Supervisors.
The City’s commitment to capital in recent years has been growing, and this was a historic budget, with $262M from the City’s General Fund appropriated to the General Fund departments over the two-year period ($141M and $121M in each fiscal year respectively). The total two-year budget for FY 2017 and 2018, including all sources, is $459M.
