Budget Town Hall Sign

The City prepares a capital budget and operating budget. The process for both begins in March and is completed in December each year.

The City's budget team typically works with department heads during the summer months to draft a preliminary budget. The preliminary budget is published publicly and undergoes additional community engagement before the Mayor publishes a final proposed budget. The City Council conducts budget hearings in November and approves the final budget in December.
