A Message From Mayor Domenic Sarno:
To the beloved citizens of Springfield, MA and the Springfield City Council,
It is our great pleasure to submit to you the FY22 Recommended Budget. For this fiscal year, the total Citywide budget is $755.7M, which represents a 3.9% increase over the FY21 Adopted Budget.
Despite the yearlong challenges we’ve faced due to COVID, we are committed to producing a budget that funds the core services our residents deserve. In that light, the FY22 Recommended Budget places a continued emphasis on public safety, public education, economic development, healthy neighborhoods, and community services.
As Mayor, I will work tirelessly to ensure that Springfield continues to prosper and remains resilient in the wake of any challenge, no matter how difficult. My administration has been tested many times in the face of adversity and continues to rise to the occasion for the betterment of our city and the community that we love.
