BALTIMORE, MD (Monday, April 1, 2023) — Today, Mayor Brandon M. Scott officially released the FY2025 Preliminary Budget.

“As we move towards this year’s budget season, it is critically important to balance our priorities and the fiscal constraints facing our city, while ensuring city services see absolutely no interruption,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott. “The unthinkably tragic events of last week have made those priorities all the more important. Our city is bracing to endure a long road to recovery from the Key Bridge collapse – but Baltimoreans can be assured that my administration will do everything in our power to ensure that our city remains strong in every way, including fiscally. This preliminary budget reflects our priorities – investments in education, recreation & parks, comprehensive violence prevention efforts, reducing vacant properties, and the restoration of city services, like weekly recycling. It balances the FY25 budget without any service reductions or layoffs, and it ensures that our city will be in a sound fiscal position as we navigate the challenges ahead.”
