Budget Office

We support the City Manager and Departments in developing the City's annual Fiscal Plan and providing financial guidance and support across the organization. The Fiscal Plan guides the City to fund services to the City's citizens.

Our budget offers a detailed breakdown of our City financial plans by fiscal year. The City's fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30. Each year, from late April through May, the City presents information on the upcoming budget at public City Commission meetings. We also hold public hearings regarding the budget before it goes to City Commission for adoption. See the City Budget Library for more information on the budget process.
