Anaheim City Budget
The Anaheim City Council last week approved the $1.8 billion city budget for the coming 12 months, focusing on the start of economic recovery, major investments in parks, libraries, roads, and utilities, and uninterrupted service to residents, businesses, and visitors.
 
The adopted budget is for the 12 months from July 2021 through June 2022, known as the fiscal year 2021-22, and comes with the reopening of Anaheim’s visitor economy in April and continuing through 2021 and 2022.
 
The budget includes $566 million in spending on public safety and community services as well as on roads, parks, libraries, upgrades to our water and power systems, and other investments that will directly benefit the daily lives of residents, businesses and visitors.
