San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Thursday signed the city’s two-year budget, cementing investments aimed at helping the city recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, but said the fast spreading delta variant remained worrisome.
The signing ceremony, held at City Hall, comes after the city’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday gave final approval to this year’s $13.1 billion budget and the following year’s $12.8 billion budget.
“I’m excited to be signing this two-year budget today after months of hard work from everyone involved. It is something that we should all be proud of,” Breed said in a statement. “With these investments, we are addressing our most pressing issues by prioritizing the residents and businesses that have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. This budget will lay the groundwork for our city’s economy and set San Francisco on a path to emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.”
