National professional organizations consistently bestow awards on the City's financial operations. The National Purchasing Institute has recognized the City's purchasing function with the Achievement of Excellence in Purchasing award each year since 2001. The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has recognized the City's financial report with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting each year since 1998, and six times before then. Additionally, the GFOA has awarded the City budget the Distinguished Budget presentation Award each year since 2015, the first year it was submitted for award consideration.
On Tuesday, September 7 and Tuesday, September 21, the City Council will hold public hearings so that the public may comment on the City’s FY2022 proposed budget and tax rate. The Council will vote to adopt the FY2022 budget and tax rate during its Tuesday, September 21 meeting. Both Council Meetings will begin at 5 p.m.
The proposed budget for FY2022 totals $56,301,727 across all budgeted funds. The total expenditures in the FY2022 budget represent a 1.9 percent increase from the previous year, which results in a small tax rate decrease to 26.4388 cents per $100 of taxable value.
