Staff Report: Appropriation Limit for Fiscal Year 2023/24
Pursuant to the Gann Spending Limit Initiative (Proposition 4, 1979), all local agencies must establish their appropriations limit based on their population and inflation. If a local agency ends its fiscal year having exceeded its Gann Limit, it must return the excess to taxpayers within two years. The City's Gann Limit for fiscal year 2023/24 is calculated at $49,091,379. The City's proposed Fiscal Year 2023/24 Budget contains applicable appropriations totaling 18,465,069, which is less than half of the City's Gann Limit.
