The Rogers City Council approved next year's budget earlier this week. We'll break it down for you.

Why it matters: Annual city budgets are more than housekeeping items. They show how much money the city expects to have and how city leaders plan to spend it.

By the numbers: The city's total budget is about $71.1 million, including about $55.6 million in the general fund.

  • The general fund covers the majority of city departments, but some city-operated departments, like the airport, have separate funds.
  • Rogers expects to see about $71.4 million in revenue in 2022, leaving a surplus of more than $248,000 in the budget.

Some of the new expenses for 2022 include:

  • About $588,000 for the Police Department fleet
  • $526,300 on capital for the Parks Department, including trails and fleet
  • $651,000 in information technology expenses, such as software licensing and equipment
  • $472,500 for the Fire Department fleet and other equipment
  • $315,000 on fleet and other equipment for the Street Maintenance Department
  • $235,000 for city hall renovations and new furnishings
  • $160,000 for improvements at Lake Atalanta
