Mayor Brandon Scott releases proposed budget for fiscal year 2025


(Baltimore, MD) -- Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott has released his proposed budget for fiscal 2025.

He says the plan continues progress on key priorities like education, violence prevention and eliminating vacant properties while funding targeted investments to make the city safer, cleaner, and more equitable.

The $4.1 billion budget includes $3.4 billion for operating expenses and around $654 million for capital investment.

The mayor says the plan closes a budget gap - in part - by eliminating vacant positions within city government.

Mayor Scott says it's too early to tell what kind of impact the collapse of the Key Bridge could have on the city's budget.
