Mayor Joel Bryant delivered the annual ‘State of the City’ address as part of the July 12 City Council meeting, reiterating many of the goals that are part of the current Strategic Plan.
Bryant provided a look at Brentwood’s demographics. As of January 2022, the city has a reported population of 64,032 residents, according to Bryant. The median annual household income is $115,167. Bryant reported that the city has an overall budget of $315 million and a $72 million General Fund budget. There are 30% reserves “available for emergency contingencies.”
The General Fund is used at the city’s discretion while the overall budget includes money that must be spent on specific items such as water, sewer, garbage and development fees.
