Budget Information


The City's budget outlines the City's plan for achieving the goals, objectives and service delivery levels desired by the Mayor and City Council. More specifically, it is a financial plan consisting of an estimate of proposed expenditures, the proposed means of financing and the goals and objectives of the expenditures for a given time period, usually one year (July 1 thru June 30). Copies of the annual budget are available for below or available at City Hall.

The budget process begins in February in every Town Department. In April the City Manager, who is the Budget Officer, reviews the budget request before meeting with each department head. From there, the manager makes a recommended budget and presents it to the council. Starting in May, budget workshops are scheduled between the council, the manager and department heads. A public hearing is held during the month of June each year, at a regularly scheduled council meeting. A budget is adopted by the council on or before June 30 of each year. Citizens are invited to attend all public meetings.
