City Hall Exterior

During a regular meeting on December 1, City Council approved the 2022 Annual Budget. This action culminates an eight-month process with contributions from all departments, over 30 employees, and approximately 3,000 hours of staff time. 

The 2022 Adopted Budget has been developed with an emphasis on the five priorities of the Strategic Plan:

  • Mobility & Infrastructure
  • Economic Development 
  • Housing
  • Public Safety
  • Quality of Life 

The City of Grand Junction is a full-service organization with over 35 distinct types of operations including:

  • Emergency medical services, wildland fire fighting, 911 dispatch, police patrol, investigations, bomb squad, SWAT
  • Parks, pools, trails, sports facilities, recreation programs
  • Streets, engineering, construction, trash collection
  • Water service, sewer service, golf, conference center, performance venues
  • Destination marketing, legal, accounting, human resource management

The 2022 Adopted Budget totals $237.5 million and features expenditures for housing, sustainability and mobility. The 2022 Adopted Budget authorizes 773 full-time employees. The majority of these employees are in public safety operations serving the community 24 hours per day, every day.

“The 2022 Adopted Budget is the culmination of the hard work of City Council and staff over several months,” Mayor Chuck McDaniel stated. “The budget is based on Council’s strategic guidance, which allows staff to implement that vision with projects and staffing in the coming year. The 2022 Adopted Budget is responsive to the needs of our residents in 2022 and helps us plan for the future as well.”
