Saginaw Passes $134 Million Budget

The City of Saginaw has a budget in place for the next fiscal year which begins in July.

City Council passed the $134 million dollar budget Monday, May 23. It’s up $1.7 million from the current year. One change to the new budget that residents will experience is an increased water maintenance and operation fund. That is proposed at $38.9 million and includes money to begin taking out lead water lines.

The city will now focus on how to spend the American Rescue Plan Act dollars. The city recently extended ARPA funding proposal submissions to June 13.
