The Key West City Commission approved the budget for fiscal 2022/23 that will provide various improvements to our island's numerous parks and recreational facilities as well as additional public safety personnel, which will enhance the City's safety and quality of life.

Following two budget workshops, the commission approved a tentative ad valorem tax rate of 2.0822, which equates to $2.08 per $1000 of assessed property value.

The adopted budget addresses many strategic priorities identified by the community, including road and sidewalk improvements, traffic and pedestrian improvements, efficiency and resiliency efforts, and a continued focus on citywide cleanliness and affordable housing initiatives.  It also addresses increased personnel and operational costs and continues to provide assistance to youth recreational leagues and local non-profit organizations.
