The proposed City of Ashland 2023-2025 Biennial Budget has been published and can be viewed online. This budget will cover a two-year period, beginning July 1, 2023, through June 30, 2025.
The City of Ashland strives to deliver services essential to the community and enhance the quality of life. In March 2023, the Mayor and City Council formally adopted Priorities to take the City into the 23-25 Biennium and beyond. The priorities are:
Wildfire risk reduction and CEAP (Climate Energy Action Plan) execution
Economic Development including development of eco-tourism like trails, ensuring City processes such as planning are supportive of attracting new business and supporting those already here
Affordability including attainable housing, and review of our rate structures for progressiveness in their livability
All with the underlying supporting principles of equity of access, and strong supportive city services with a customer service focus.
The Council Priorities were preceded by the adoption of Vision and Value Statements for the City in the summer of 2022. View the Vision and Value statements at ashland.or.us/VisionandValues.
The 23-25 Biennium Budget is now in the hands of the Citizens’ Budget Committee who will review the proposed budget, between now and the end of May, and make recommendations to City Council in June 2023. The adopted budget will go into effect on July 1, 2023. More at ashland.or.us/23-25Budget.
