Hogsett to Unveil 2020 Budget Blueprint

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett will formally unveil his proposed budget Monday night which includes increases for public safety and a decrease in his own office’s expenditures; when compared to last year's proposal. 

According to the ordinance posted on the city’s website, the administration is budgeting $283 million for IMPD and $215 million for the fire department.  That is $14 million increase for IMPD over last year and an $8 million for IFD.

There is a four million increase in the Sheriff’s department’s budget over last year.  It’s going to $119 million. And the Office of Public Health and Safety gets a $3 million increase over last year, taking it to $16 million.  Parks saw an overall $2 million increase. 

The budget for the Mayor’s office actually decreased from $10.1 million last year to $6.1 million this year.  Most of that was in the area of contracts and other services. Meanwhile, the budget for the City-County Council stayed relatively flat going from $2.1 million to $2.3 million.

The Council will spend the next few months reviewing the proposal.

A final vote is expected in October.
