City Budgeting Process

Annually a budget is put together by each department head for their respected areas. The budget is submitted via ordinance to City Council. Prior to adopting the budget, the finance committee holds hearings to review each departments budget.

Once approved by council, the budget is then submitted to the Department of Local Government Finance for certification. The proposed budget will then help set the local property tax rates.
