2021-2022 Approved Executive and Detail Budgets
(July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022)
Mayor Greg Fischer’s recommended Louisville Metro Government budget for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 was approved by Metro Council June 24, 2021 and went into effect July 1, 2021. The budget is the 11th budget proposal that he’s presented, and it paints a more hopeful picture as the city, commonwealth, country, and planet recovers from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
As the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, this budget anticipates the city’s services returning to pre-pandemic levels. In addition, it continues the strides that are currently being made in public health, equity, and the economy by investing in reimagining public safety, our workforce, and our city’s infrastructure.
LMG maintains its focus on the No. 1 job: to protect and promote the residents’ health and safety while building a future of opportunity and prosperity for every person in every corner of the city. The city is rooted in a connected community that cares for each other through selfless acts of bravery, from first responders to health providers to grocery clerks.
This community has weathered this pandemic together and will come out stronger and more bonded to each other. This spending plan with total expenditures of $1.1 billion, including $658 million of General Fund dollars, is the fiscal starting point to the important decisions that need to be made to advance the city’s values and community.
Please note that the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Approved Executive Budget has been updated as of 9/10/2021 to include the External Agencies Funding - Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) section on page 250 inadvertently omitted from the previous version.
