St. Paul mayor’s office seeks public input on 2022 city budget

The office of St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is inviting residents to help shape the 2022 city budget process.

The mayor’s office will hold two virtual roundtables on July 6 at 5:30 p.m. and July 8 at 6:30 p.m. Online registration closes at 8 a.m. the day before each budget roundtable.

The goal is to help communicate public priorities to the mayor’s office in advance of Carter’s budget proposal, which will be released by Aug. 15. The City Council will then have until December to help further refine the proposal with input from city department leaders and vote on adoption. The mayor has line-item veto authority over the council’s adopted budget.

The maximum property tax levy will be determined in September and the final tax levy will be adopted in December alongside the city budget.

Community members can register to take part in the roundtables at
