Fiscal Year 2021 Budget

In November 2019, the Evanston City Council adopted a budget for the 2020 calendar year. During this process, a projected budget for the 2021 calendar year was also created and is included in the 2020 budget document. Given the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a revised 2021 Proposed Budget will be presented to City Council in October 2020. City Council discussions and other public hearings on the 2021 budget will be held in October and November 2020. The City will be developing opportunities for virtual engagement on the 2021 budget in August and September 2020. More information on those engagement opportunities will be shared to this page and to the City’s news and social media sources.
