Flint’s 2022-23 fiscal year budget hearing will take place on Wednesday

FLINT, MI — The city government of Flint will hold a community hearing this week to begin discussion on its proposed budget for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

The public meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30 in the City Council Chambers on the third floor of Flint City Hall, 1101 S. Saginaw St.

The 2022-23 budget was submitted by Mayor Sheldon Neeley to city council on March 7, according to a city press release. It is visible on the city’s website on this link or at the town hall office on the second floor of the town hall.

The proposed budget for next year includes a property tax mileage rate that will be levied to support the remainder of the budget. That will likely be the main topic of the meeting, according to the city’s website.

The budget’s biggest expense, according to Neeley, is its pension and retiree inheritance costs.

The pension plan contribution is expected to increase to $32 million in fiscal year 2023 and $40 million in fiscal year 2024.

It maintains investments in police and fire departments, invests additional burn resources, and maintains city staff, but eats into the city’s general fund by $14 million.
