The City adopts a budget each year. The budget serves as the City's annual operating plan and assigns spending amounts for the City's various functions for the period October 1 - September 30.
The budget preparation process begins in the spring and continues through the summer. During this time, the City Manager and department heads compile their plans for the next year and estimate specific costs. The City Manager then submits a proposed budget to the City Council.
Public hearings and opportunities for citizen input are required pieces of the budget process. The City Council usually receives a budget briefing from staff in August. The Council holds hearings regarding the proposed tax rate and budget in August and/or September. The budget is approved in September by the Council and takes effect October 1.
Throughout the fiscal year, the City sometimes amends the original adopted budget. This may be done to authorize unforeseen expenditures or revenues, or to approve expenditures initiated last fiscal year but not yet paid. Only the City Council may amend the total budget.
