 April 18, 2018 - Hampton City Manager Mary Bunting’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2019 adds funding in three key areas: fighting crime, boosting education and supporting employees. It does that without a tax increase by using cost-saving measures totaling more than $1 million to balance the budget in a tight year. For the record, Bunting proposed a FY19 budget that totals $471 million, an increase of just 0.71 percent. Of that, 43 percent will go to the school system and 57 percent will go towards city and all other expenses.

Bunting addressed the citizen priorities, noting that some spending increases were proposed in the annual operating budget. Others were in an expanded, five-year capital improvement plan that contains strategic priority projects designed to stimulate economic growth and improve quality of life. The proposed budget is available online and in libraries. There will be two public hearings before Council votes May 9.
