Mayor Jane Castor Presents Budget for Fiscal Year 2022 with Focus on Strengthening Tampa’s Foundation

Mayor Jane Castor Presents Budget for Fiscal Year 2022 with Focus on Strengthening Tampa’s Foundation Robert L. Thu, 08/05/2021 – 10:40 am

Today Mayor Jane Castor presented a budget for Fiscal Year 2022 focused on the theme of Strengthening Tampa’s Foundation and utilizing  new technology to help Tampa residents more easily see how their money is being spent on city services.

“A strong foundation – be it infrastructure, housing, fiscal strength, opportunity, or safety – is what enables a community like ours to be resilient in the face of challenges and ambitious when it comes to improving the quality of life for every neighborhood,” Mayor Castor said of the budget that keeps the tax rate level while significantly investing in critical needs like affordable housing, long-deferred infrastructure maintenance, and improving emergency medical response times by adding personnel, fire stations and rescue vehicles.

The latest City of Tampa budget proposal makes history in taking budget transparency to the next level.

Partnering with OpenGov, a leader in cloud technology for local governments, the city is making the budget available on a portal that invites residents to better understand the FY2022 budget, track spending towards major projects, access graphs, charts, other visualization data, and more. It also helps break down data silos between departments and empower the community to access meaningful metrics about fiscal spending and key initiatives citywide in just a few clicks.

“Our residents deserve to know how their tax dollars are being spent,” Mayor Castor said.  “As good financial stewards, we want to make it as easy and transparent as possible for the public to engage with our budget process. OpenGov provides the 21st-century tools to visualize meaningful data that showcases how funds are spent to keep the city running and transform Tampa’s tomorrow.”
