BUDGET MANAGEMENT

The Finance Department manages the annual budget process, including training and support, economic conditions and constraints, revenue estimates, analysis of department budget requests, and presentation of the recommended budget to the public and City Council. City Council adopts the two-year financial plan and appropriates the first year operating and capital budget. The operating and capital budget for the second year of the plan is appropriated the following year as part of the Mid-Cycle Budget Review. The Finance Department publishes the City’s Two-Year Budget, and a copy is posted to the website, along with mid-cycle adopted budgets and periodic reports.
