While the rate of inflation has increased at 2% per year since Mayor Boughton took office, Danbury's budgets have been held virtually flat. Since 2002, the average mill rate adjustment is only 0.14%.
Through proven fiscal management, the City of Danbury also maintains a AAA bond rating each year.
Mayor Boughton crafts each fiscal budget as a statement of values. Each year, he addresses concerns of Danbury residents and taxpayers.
That is why in 2019, Mayor Boughton proposed $4.7 million on road maintenance and paving as well as an additional $2 million on new sidewalks in our downtown area.
Under Mayor Boughton's leadership, the City of Danbury has experienced a downtown renaissance.
Most recently, the City completed a Downtown Danbury Transit-Oriented Development Study to further assess and make transportation improvements in the city center.
As a former small business owner, and a lifelong advocate for small businesses, the Mayor is proud to assist in the opening of hundreds of businesses every year. Last year, the City cut the ribbon to 900+ businesses!
The Mayor hired a Business Advocacy Director who is available to anyone who owns a business in the City and all those looking to start a business in Danbury.
