St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter proposed a $782 million budget for 2023 on Thursday that he called a "nuts-and-bolts" fiscal plan, marking a $41 million increase from 2022.

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is proposing a 15% boost to the city's property tax collections in 2023, but in return residents will get a break on street maintenance bills.

In his annual budget address Thursday morning at the Harriet Island Wigington Pavilion, Carter proposed a $782 million budget that he called a "nuts-and-bolts" fiscal plan, marking a $41 million increase from 2022.

"This budget centers on the basics of municipal government - improving public safety outcomes, repairing city streets and city-owned buildings and addressing permitting backlogs so that residents and businesses can efficiently and effectively reinvest in our community," the mayor said.
