ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (April 17, 2023) – The Town of Oro Valley Town Manager’s Recommended Budget for fiscal year 2023/24 is now available online. Click here to view the budget document in its entirety.
This budget totals $147.9 million, representing an increase of $184,934, or one-tenth of one percent more than the adopted FY 22/23 budget of $147.7 million. The General Fund budget totals $56 million, a 5.5% increase from the FY 22/23 budget of $53.1 million.

Notable items in the budget include funding for roads, water and Town assets, land use design, and financial stability and sustainability for an inflationary economy. The budget process involves the prudent allocation of resources across Town operations to continue and improve the high service levels Oro Valley residents expect in order to live, work, play and prosper in our community.
