Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has proposed a $7.1 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year, with 90% of it dedicated to running the city.

This includes park construction, treating drinking water, paving streets, and building affordable housing.

While general inflation and the sunsetting of federal resources pose challenges, the budget allocates funds for top priority projects.

This includes $43 million to operate hundreds of shelter beds, funding to expand the Street Services Coordination Center, and more police officer positions.

Other areas of focus include stolen vehicle recovery and retail theft investigations, economic recovery, and livability.

The budget also accounts for the overhaul of city government approved by voters in November.

The final version of the budget will be approved by City Council in June, following a public hearing where residents can provide input.
