Johns Creek adopts $78M Budget for Fiscal Year 2024

The Johns Creek City Council unanimously approved the $78.8 million general fund FY2024 Budget on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The newly adopted budget, which will take effect on Oct. 1, is focused on the fundamentals and on fulfillment of plans and initiatives important to the success of the City.

The FY2024 Budget has four important pillars which elevate and protect the entire community, including: Investing in the City’s parks, streets, and infrastructure; Advancing technology and service delivery innovation; Strengthening our people and teams; and Enhancing our public safety framework. The approved budget fully funds all of the City’s core services and needed personnel and also allocates funds for Creekside Park, which is an integral part of the emerging Town Center.

“The 2024 fiscal year budget reflects priorities identified by our community,” said Johns Creek Mayor John Bradberry. “By further developing our public amenities and improving city services, we will advance critical components that make Johns Creek a premier community of health, wellness, and innovation and one of the best places to live in the U.S.”

In January 2023, the Johns Creek City Council agreed to focus on five strategic priorities: Creekside Park, Economic Development, Green Communities Certification, Town Center, and Recreation & Parks. The continued commitment of council is reflected in the newly adopted FY2024 Budget. It ensures the city is operating within its means without increasing taxes on residents, thus continuing to be reliable stewards of the taxpayers’ money.

Highlights Include:

  • Total General Fund revenues and expenditures are balanced at $78,858,052.
  • Public safety training and education as well as the replacement of critically important public safety fleet vehicles.
  • Infrastructure improvements and maintenance to help address traffic congestion relief, provide for pedestrian and bicycle connections, and operations and safety improvements.
  • Critical Information Technology systems and safeguards to allow for accurate and efficient access to secure records and files and help make the community safe and the City responsive to the needs of residents and businesses.
  • Stormwater Utility Fund provides for expenditures of $3.8M to address stormwater needs.

The City Council publicly reviewed and refined the budget at the July 25 Work Session, August 8 Work Session and Council Meeting, the August 22 Work Session, and adopted the FY2024 Budget at the September 12 Council Meeting.

The adopted FY2024 Budget anticipates that revenues will fully fund all the General Fund expenditures and investments in the accruals. By taking a fiscally conservative approach to budgeting, the city positions itself as prepared to address and withstand any potential economic fluctuations which may unexpectedly occur while achieving the primary goal of enhancing the quality of life for residents and businesses throughout Johns Creek.
