The City of Bloomington is facing a multi-million dollar budget shortfall as a result of COVID-19. In an effort to ensure budget discussions reflect community preferences, the City Council appointed a Community Budget Advisory Committee (CBAC) in May 2020.

The advisory committee is made up of nine members who have knowledge of municipal budgets and City government. Through the coming months, the Community Budget Advisory Committee will engage community members and review the City’s budget and services to provide the Council recommendations given the budget challenges. By looking at the overall budget instead of reducing services one by one, the City Council and City staff are aiming to make sure service changes reflect what community members value most.

What is included?

2021/2022 Budgets

  • General Fund
  • Internal Service Funds
  • Select Enterprise Funds (Recreation Funds, Motor Vehicle, Solid Waste)
  • Select Special Revenue Funds (Communications and Fire Pension)

What is NOT included?

  • 2021/2022 Budgets for funds that do not require property tax support such as the Utility Funds and other specially-focused accounts
  • County Property Tax
  • School Property Tax
  • Other Property Tax (Met Transit, Three Rivers, HRA, etc.)
