The Mayor's 2015-17 Proposed Budget

The mayor's proposed budget was released April 30 and will be debated by the public and City Council until the Council adopts a final budget by June 30. Open Budget will publish visualizations that allow the public to explore the budget soon after we receive data from the city. See Oakland's current budget, as well as Oakland’s five-year forecast.
