St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter will deliver his 2023 budget presentation — his fifth budget address — at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Harriet Island Wigington Pavilion, 200 Dr. Justus Ohage Blvd.
The budget address is the first step in a series of budget negotiations between the mayor’s office and the St. Paul City Council, which is scheduled to approve a final version of the 2023 budget and property tax levy on Dec. 7. In the span of those four months, the city council will meet with department leaders to discuss key spending priorities.
For public feedback, the council will host a community meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 at the Como Lakeside Pavilion.
The council will vote upon a levy limit — the maximum the property tax levy can be increased — on Sept. 21. Estimated property tax statements will be mailed Nov. 15.
