South Pasadena Asks Community to Shape 2024-25 Budget

The city of South Pasadena extends an invitation to all community members to participate in shaping the Fiscal Year 2024-25 budget.
The city said public input is invaluable as it works with them to prioritize fiscal goals and maintain essential services for the community. The budget serves as a crucial policy document, outlining fiscal priorities and providing a framework for financial decision-making. It ensures the continuation of core services that enhance the quality of life for all residents. The budget process involves thorough analysis of actual and projected fund balances, revenues and expenditures. Each city department meticulously prepares detailed budgets, including recommended service levels and activity goals for the upcoming fiscal year. The Finance Department collaborates with other departments to project revenues accurately.
Subsequently, the city manager reviews departmental requests, aligns activities with City Council policies, and makes necessary adjustments. The proposed budget is then compiled and presented for public review at a scheduled public hearing before being submitted to the City Council for final approval. The city values community engagement throughout this process and encourage all residents to participate.
To contribute input, community members can complete the Fiscal Year 2024-25 budget survey at or visit the city of South Pasadena’s website homepage. The survey is also available through flyers located at all city counters. The deadline for survey submission is May 14 at 6 p.m. The city will also be conducting extensive outreach on upcoming opportunities for further engagement and participation in the process. For any questions on the survey or the budget process, contact the Finance Department at or call (626) 403-7250.
