An essential part of planning for the city of Phoenix is the development of its annual budget every year. The more than $1.4 billion General Fund operating budget includes everything from police and fire services, to parks, libraries, and senior services.
With a budget that size, supporting the fifth largest city in the country and 1.7 million residents, it can be a challenge to understand everything that goes in to the services you receive. To help residents better understand how our budget is created, the City’s Budget & Research Department has added a new tool to gather feedback and help you see what makes Phoenix run.
Called FundPHX this software lets you see for yourself what each service costs, and how much it would cost (or save) when you change service levels. You can explore the tool on your own here.
