The annual operating budget document is one of the most important documents produced by the City.  The Operating Budget projects short-term revenue and expenditures (employee services, maintenance operations, internal service charges and debt service payments) related to providing day-to-day services such as recreation programs, library, older adult services, streets, parks, police, fire, water, and wastewater.

Preliminary budget information is brought to the budget briefing City Council meeting for discussion in April/May. Then, final budget information is presented to City Council in June for adoption. The adopted operating budget covers one fiscal year, from July 1st through June 30th.
