FY 2017-18 Budget Process

In an effort to increase transparency and citizen participation, this dedicated webpage has been created for the City’s Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget Process.  On the webpage, citizens will be able to view a brief video on the budget and the City’s budget calendar.  In addition, a link on the left margin has been created to view budget presentations/updates and another link has been created for citizens to submit budget submissions/ideas.
