Brighton City Council adopted the 2022 budget by a 6-0 vote at the December 7 City Council meeting. The vote approved $155,140,018 across all 15 of the city’s operating, capital and utility funds. The adopted budget includes an approximate 12-percent increase from the 2021 budget of $138,197,981.

Highlights of the budget include:

  • Moving into construction phase for water treatment plant expansion and upgrades
  • Conversion of turf across multiple City parks to support water conservation efforts
  • Begins design of Sable Blvd. improvements to support the future E-470 Interchange
  • Construction of North Outfall Baseline Alignment to alleviate potential storm drainage safety issues in our community, and
  • Implementation of a new online permit system

The 2022 budget runs from January to December 2022, and reflects the City’s emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as future growth needs. Ongoing revenues are expected to remain stable in 2022 with an anticipated $70M bond issuance expected to support the Water Treatment Plant expansion. The City’s population has more than doubled over the last two decades and is expected to continue growing over the next ten years. This budget addresses challenges associated with this growth including potable water production, water conservation, traffic safety, public safety and expanded service delivery

City leaders were able to balance the 2022 budget, while maintaining the required reserves across all funds.
