Welcome to the 2021 City of Alexandria budget. The budget is the single-most important policy document that a local unit of government adopts.
The Mayor, City Council, and staff are excited to share their goals and priorities for 2021 through this budget. Through a strategic planning process the City adopted the following WHY statement: “To Make Alexandria the Place You Choose”.
The City aims to meet this WHY statement through focusing the budget around the six strategic priorities in the Strategic Plan.
- Operational Excellence
- Long-Term Planning
- Sustainable Infrastructure
- Safe Communities
- Economic Vitality
The Budget Presentation goes into more detail on the 2021 budget. For more details, there are individual departmental discussion documents that discuss the workings of each department.
