Urban Politics #169: A Review Of The 2004 City Budget

December 2nd, 2003

Last week, the Seattle City Council passed the 2004 budget totaling $2.6 billion, of which $666,079,571 were in General Fund revenues and $666,078,194 in General Fund expenditures. The balance of the budget consists of funds outside the general fund. This mostly consists of funds within the “enterprise” departments of City Light and Seattle Public Utilities. Their revenues and expenditures are kept separate from the rest of the City’s budget since they are supported by their ratepayers and not the general taxpayers of Seattle.
