Salt Lake City Budget Adopted The Salt Lake City Council adopted a budget for Fiscal Year 2022-2023. The budget includes using existing Funding Our Future tax dollars on a fifth critical need “bucket”: parks and public lands maintenance. Housing, safety, streets and transit projects will continue to be funded by Funding Our Future sales tax revenue – and street reconstruction projects will continue to be funded by the General Obligation bond. The 8.7 million dollar projected growth in sales tax revenue allows Salt Lake City to allocate 2 million dollars from Funding Our Future revenue to parks maintenance without taking funds dedicated to housing, safety, streets and transit.

Bond-Funded Street Reconstruction Projects In 2022, many Salt Lake City streets will continue to be reconstructed thanks to the 2018 voter-approved bond. These projects include 200 South, 900 South, and local street projects. To learn about these and other road construction projects funded by Funding Our Future, click here.
