Look Inside the City's Budget Reports

The City prepares an annual budget, which is a schedule of the City's revenue from taxes and other sources and a schedule of what the City plans to spend during the year. The City balances these two schedules, much like a household balances its checkbook.

The budget process begins in September of each year when each City department reviews its fees for the services it provides. The fee requests from each department are reviewed by the Finance Committee of the City Council in November, and the operating and capital budget process begins in November.

Each department is given a target budget amount based upon forecasted revenues. Departments then prepare estimated actuals for the current budget year and the next budget year proposals. Three months later, or in March, the Finance Committee meets to review the proposed budget.  In April, the City Council receives the final revisions to the budget. The City Council formally adopted the FY2024 budget on April 17, 2023.
