The Johns Creek City Council unanimously approved a $54.3 million General Fund budget Monday, Sept. 25 for the fiscal year (FY) 2018, beginning Oct. 1. The adopted budget includes $43.6M in General Fund expenditures for government services and $10.7M in total for long term infrastructure maintenance accruals, replacement vehicle accruals, capital projects, and E911 services.
During budget discussions, Mayor Mike Bodker commended the City Council for continued fiscal discipline and the setting aside of funds for long-term maintenance of city roads, sidewalks, parks, and other facilities.
“The maintenance accruals are an element of our annual budget that sets Johns Creek apart from other cities,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “It shows our dedication to balancing new projects and priorities with the maintenance of our existing infrastructure.”
The budget is the annual operating plan for the City and directly aligns with the priorities set by the City Council. Highlights include $250K in construction documents for a fourth fire station, $134,244 for a new police officer (and associated vehicle and equipment), $7,000,000 for repaving, and $500K for new sidewalks. Overall the budget prioritizes providing leading levels of public safety, addressing traffic congestion relief, and steadily improving the recreation and parks system.
