City Budget

The annual budget is the City's most important document that outlines spending plans and priorities for the coming fiscal year, from July 1 to June 30.

The budget process begins in January each year when the City Council identifies funding priorities, based on established work plans for the following fiscal year. A draft budget is then prepared and submitted by the City Manager in May. Meetings to receive public input are held in May and June, before a final budget is prepared and approved by the City Council.
