    Mayor Brandon Johnson is proposing a $16.6 billion spending plan for 2024 with plans to forgo a property tax increase, create a standalone Department of Environment and provide funding to begin reopening city mental health clinics. 

    Johnson’s budget proposal includes $150 million to support migrants and a proposal to disband the Department of Assets, Information and Services in favor of two separate departments — the Department of Technology and Innovation and the Department of Fleet and Facility Management. 

    The mayor proposed his first-ever budget Wednesday, telling City Council members and Chicagoans his spending plan will “ensure that every resident of this City can thrive in peace and prosperity, connected to all the amenities and resources they need.”
