About the City budget

Each year, the City Council considers one of the most–if not the most–important recurring items: the City’s budget. The budget is the City’s fiscal plan that sets out anticipated revenues and expenditures for accomplishing a variety of services over a fiscal year. Basically, it’s our financial plan. Our budget consists of several funds, some of which are restricted (such as grant funds, which can only be used for a specific purpose), and others where we have discretion. An example of a fund where we have discretion is the City’s General Fund. Our General Fund can typically be used for any general municipal purpose–and it currently accounts for most of the major services that we provide to you. 

Be part of the process: give us your input so we can prepare the budget

To help us put the budget together, we want to hear from you–to let us know how you would like to see the City spend its funds! Join us at this community meeting to learn about our budget and to give us input on where you’d like our budget dollars to be spent.
