What percentage increase is the budget for FY19 compared to FY18?

The changes in the General Fund budget should be compared against the base budget, rather than simply year-over-year. The base budget is the recurring portion of the budget from the prior year. Comparing against the base budget is important because the prior year’s total budget has one-time expenditures that use one-time funding sources, which would skew the overall analysis. The total recurring expenditures are increasing by 3%, with the majority of the $2.66 million increase from base adjustments and employee merit increases. The proposed budget also includes $1.43 million in one-time expenditures for FY19.
