Budget and Annual Financial Reports

Each year The City determines the funds it requires for its operating budget and capital budget. City Council reviews and approves these requirements at separate times.

Budget on the Go

When something is this good, you take it on the road! We want to make sure you have had a chance to tell us what you think, so we are coming out to you.

Pop by and tell us what you think, and how you would spend your tax dollar.
