The Budget Section of the Financial Resources Division is responsible for overseeing the preparation of the City’s annual budget and capital improvement program. The annual budget serves as the foundation for the City's financial planning and control.
The City Manager presents the proposed budget to the City Council for review at least thirty-five calendar days prior to the beginning of each fiscal year. The City Council is required to hold public hearings on the proposed budget and to adopt a final budget no later than June 30, which is the close of the City's fiscal year.
The City provides a full range of services which include general government, public safety (police, fire, disaster preparedness, and building inspection), construction and maintenance of highways and streets, economic development, culture and recreation, electric, water, airport, refuse, sewer, and senior citizen/handicap transportation. In addition to general City activities, the City Council is financially responsible for the Housing Authority, Successor Redevelopment Agency, Public Financing Authority, and Municipal Improvements Corporation; therefore, these entities are included as an integral part of the City's financial statements.
Recent years' budget and capital improvement program documents have been made available online. Use the links below to review these documents.
