With revenues growing, budget includes new investments and no tax increase
Calling Jacksonville “a city of opportunity,” Mayor Alvin Brown today presented a Fiscal Year 2014-2015 balanced budget proposal
that includes no increase in the tax rate and invests in job creation, public safety, Downtown revitalization and quality of life.
“This is a dynamic time for our city,” said Mayor Brown. “Our unemployment rate is falling and our high school graduation rate is rising. Foreclosures are down and home values are up. Our businesses are investing, our port is expanding and our college-educated population is growing. Our Downtown is coming alive, our neighborhoods are getting rid of blight and our parks are being enjoyed by millions of visitors.”
