The Wilmington City Council adopted the 2013-14 fiscal year budget at their meeting on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. 

According to state law, city governments cannot have deficits – they must have a balanced budget in place by July 1 of each year for the fiscal year that runs from July 1 through June 30.

Budget Highlights

Highlights:

  • No property tax increase
  • Core services maintained

  • Strong savings (fund balance) for emergencies of about $25 million
  • Continued funding for 5-year infrastructure improvement plan
    • 5¢ of the current 45¢ property tax rate funds a five-year plan to make $41 million worth of repairs and improvements – such as street repaving and work on public facilities such as the Riverwalk – that had been put on hold during the economic downturn. 
  • Continued public safety investment, including funding a full year’s funding for the WPD’s new Mobile Field Force as well as the purchase of a new ladder fire truck
