Big city system

We were able to support designated cities of the whole country based on "designated city Conference of Mayors action plan at the time of wide area, large-scale disaster" by Kumamoto earthquake quickly all in one body. Support of large-scale supplies and smooth support by staff of staff dispatch of a total of about 24,000 and dispatch that was pleased with in various places of affected areas are result of "the spot" and "collective strength" that designated city has.

We show opinion as "designated city Conference of Mayors" at meetings of country, and what is reflected by measure increases. Transfer about the prefectural expenses burden staff of a school coming out in 2017 is the first example that authority and tax resources are transferred integrally. About review of the Disaster Relief Act, discussion with country and National Governors' Association begins. In the cause of strong relationship of mutual trust between chiefs, the field of every policy, policy dispatch power of designated city has been increasing.

Budget scale

Each 2017 accounts budget to suggest,

General account 1.6459 trillion yen
Special accounts 1.3449 trillion yen
Government enterprise accounts 580.1 billion yen
By all accounts sum total, it is 3.5709 trillion yen

We do in this.

General account by increase of personnel expenses accompanied with Motoichi transfer of the prefectural expenses burden staff of a school in comparison with last year of 8.7% grow, in the sum total of all accounts of 5.1% grew.

By general account budget, we anticipated with 719.3 billion yen to grow in comparison with net income sum with possibility by increase of personal municipal tax 0.5% more at first in 2016 about city tax income to occupy the center of the annual revenue. Of these, we reserve 3 billion yen for resources of revised budget on the way in the year and include 716.3 billion yen by original budget.

By annual expenditure, we included maintenance costs such as facilities 190.4 billion yen from viewpoints such as improvement of civic life including the new city hall maintenance and maintenance of Yokohama beltway, maintenance of the advanced harbor facilities, maintenance of social welfare facility and repairs of school facility or economic activation.

Maintenance, municipal bond issuance of fiscal soundness

Based on "the regulations about promotion of a certain responsibility financial administration for the future", it is important policy in financial administration and compilation of the budget that balances "maintenance of fiscal soundness" with "promotion of measure".

In 29 fiscal budgets, we worked on compilation of the budget with strong-willed will to achieve financial aim by all means and realized aim.

"The borrowed money balance that general account supports" that published aim to be 3.2 trillion yen or less at the end of 2017 anticipates 3.1741 trillion yen that 32.2 billion yen compared to the previous year falls, and it is expected that we can achieve aim.

In addition, there was the mayoral election in 2017, but it had top priority and thought about activation of civic life, the city economy and included expense that was necessary as budget a year in whole year.

In consideration of point such as policy judgment of the new mayor, we reserved annual revision resources 3 billion yen while we did so.

As main approach, review and privatization, trust of city hall inside expense including close inspection of desk work costs reviewed bailouts to affiliated organization other than promotion of becoming and, in 1,100 business in total, brought about the amount of effect of 10.5 billion yen.

We will work on constant administrative reform with every effort in future.


Yokohama-shi song which sang for more than 100 years from turning point of the 50th anniversary of the opening of a port and was inherited, and has been got close to. On February 1, we sang in unison with all of the City Counsil for the first time in this this conference room. We refreshed thought to love respect and Yokohama to ancient people and ticked away weight of responsibility that we made the future of Yokohama and gave on chest.

Even if there are the times every moment in the changing inside, our mission is unchangeable. Citizen's all of you are spiritually rich and make society to be able to live in and must put up. We draw potential of Yokohama to the maximum and make up strong financial fundamental and realize sustained growth. "Sympathy and trust" that Yokohama-shi brought about so far over every field evolve to close "cooperation", and they push growth of internal and external city from behind let alone Yokohama. We will continue challenge from now on to succeed Yokohama full of charm in the next generation.

It is got over by all means if we concentrate power of "people" even if all answers are difficult problems in the spot. We will carry through this faith from now on and will work for further leap of Yokohama in all Yokohama.

And we are sincerely proud that we can exchange discussion with all of the classic Yokohama City Council for Yokohama. We want to push forward step for the future together. Thank you for your cooperation.
