Tiburon’s draft budget boosts spending on police and infrastructure

Tiburon plans to boost police spending by more than $400,000 while also focusing on infrastructure projects including street paving, stabilizing Spanish Trail Road and repairs to the Main Street seawall under its proposed $26.5-million budget for fiscal 2024.


A preliminary budget, reviewed by the Town Council at its June 7 meeting, shows a $16.02-million operating budget against $16.03 million in revenue, for a slight surplus of $17,760. The remaining $10.5 million in appropriations from the overall municipal budget goes toward capital improvements, equipment expenses and pass-through debt service.


The proposed additional $419,597 in funding for the Police Department, which accounts for increased salaries and benefits, a new officer trainee position and replacement of three vehicles, is a 9% increase over the current fiscal year. The overall police budget, projected to be about $5.1 million, has risen some 46% in the past four years and in fiscal 2024 will account for nearly one-third of the town’s operating expenditures.
