General Fund

41% of Richmond's 2019 – 2020 General Fund was spent on law enforcement.
A general fund is a city’s primary account, funded by taxes (like property and sales tax) and used to pay for services such as the fire department, public works, parks, community services and more.

Decision Makers

The city manager (hired by the city council) submits a proposed fiscal year budget to the city council for review. Council has the right to direct the city manager to make changes to the budget and bring it back. A majority vote of the city council is needed to approve a new budget. The budget must be approved by June 30 to take effect starting July 1, 2020.
