The Budget Process

The City adopts the Biennium Budget in June of the first year of the biennium cycle.  Budget development begins in December 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 of the first fiscal year of the biennium cycle. The City’s fiscal year is July 1 through June 30. 

Several budget reviews are completed and presented to City Council during the budget cycle.  Capital Improvement budget adjustment in August or September along with a 1st quarter biennium adjustment in January, a mid-cycle adjustment in June and a 3rd quarter biennium adjustment the following January.  These adjustments provide an opportunity for a detailed analysis and fine tuning of the revenues and expenditures to date and going forward for the remainder of the biennium budget cycle.
