The City-Parish operating budget is supported by various revenue streams such as sales/use and property taxes, fees that range from occupational licenses to sewer user fees, bond sales, interagency transfers, and more. Projected revenues are used to responsibly develop the City-Parish budget each year with actual revenues collected throughout the year used to deliver critical services, programs, and projects to Baton Rouge residents.
The operating budget portion of Open Budget BR allows users to drill down into spending categories such as department-level and service-specific budgets. Browse the budget based on the fund or department and drill down to each spending category to better understand departmental expenses and revenue sources along with budgeted versus actual expenses incurred throughout the year, which can be viewed in greater detail at checkbook.brla.gov.
