Denver – Denver City Council tonight approved Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s 2020 budget, a $1.5 billion spending plan that prioritizes equity and opportunity for all while preparing the city for an economic slowdown.
“I want to thank City Council for their vote tonight to advance this balanced, fiscally responsible and proactive budget that will benefit every Denver resident,” Mayor Hancock said. “This budget puts our residents’ priorities front and center – improving support for those experiencing homelessness, building a mobility system to reduce traffic congestion, combating climate change, and ensuring all neighborhoods are safe. This budget builds equity into its very core, all while preparing our city for an uncertain economy in the future. This is a budget focused on our people and their needs, and the residents of Denver can be proud of the work that has gone into this spending plan.”
