Annual Budget

The City’s Annual Operating and Capital Improvement Budget is a financial proposal that annually directs the provision of public services and facilities. This plan represents the City Manager’s and City Council’s commitment to provide for the most important citizen needs within the boundaries of available funds (revenue).

The process of developing a new fiscal year budget begins in January with the City Council’s adoption of priorities as part of its annual retreat. Department Budget Hearings and Finance Review take place from March and April, with workshops before Council, which are open to the public, held in April and May. Following the presentation of the proposed budget before Council, two public hearings are held before the Council adopts the fiscal year budget in June.
