The Budget Process

Budget development begins in November when the City Council establishes their budget priorities for the coming budget year. Departments submit their preliminary requests for personnel, operational priorities and capital improvement projects (CIPs) to Finance in January/February. Meetings are held between the City Manager, Finance and individual departments to incorporate all submittals into the proposed budget which is required to be submitted to the City Council no later than June.

In May/June, City Council reviews the proposed budget and holds public workshops. Any recommendations that arise from these workshops are incorporated into the final budget document which must be adopted by City Council prior to July 1.

A mid-year budget review is completed and presented to the City Council in February. This review is an opportunity for a detailed analysis and fine tuning of the revenues and expenditures to date and going forward for the remainder of the fiscal year.
