SAN ANTONIO (September 16, 2021) –The San Antonio City Council has approved a $3.1 billion spending plan that increases many services across the board with no change to the property tax rate. This is the largest budget in the City's history and represents a major step toward a full recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The City's diverse revenue stream took a strong hit from the pandemic," said Councilwoman Melissa Cabello Havrda. "But the city is coming back. There is still important ground to cover while many residents are struggling to get back on their feet." Specifically, for Council District 6, there were significant accomplishments that address the community's basic service needs - public health, affordable housing, infrastructure, economic development and public safety, including 12 new SAFFE officers to increase the City's community policing efforts. "District 6 staff has worked all year with the City's budget staff to ensure that targeted enhancements were part of the proposed budget, and not 11th hour amendments that risk not seeing the light of day," said Councilwoman Cabello Havrda.
