Mayor Ballantyne's budget: Foundation for Progress

Somerville City Hall

“This budget is the result of deep community engagement, collaboration with the City Council, and innovative thinking by City staff,” said Mayor Ballantyne. “Equity is the cornerstone of this budget, and I could not be more proud of the proposal that we have put together. This budget invests in our youth, improves delivery of daily services to residents, and makes foundational investments in our City systems that will allow us to successfully tackle the most pressing issues facing residents.”
