What's new this year?

The City Council has approved changes to the City’s budget process that are anticipated to further increase transparency and public engagement and promote sound fiscal management practices. Council has adopted a biennial operating budget for FY2011-13, a two-year spending plan that will enhance long-range planning and improve program evaluation.  This effort involves balancing expenditures against revenue sources that are under increasing pressure from current economic conditions. We will continue to focus on completing significant infrastructure projects, addressing key community priorities, and maintaining the current level of city services.View adopted budgets from the current and previous years>>>
