At Monday’s meeting, the City Council will consider one of the most–if not the most–important recurring items: the City’s budget. The budget is the City’s fiscal plan that sets out anticipated revenues and expenditures for accomplishing a variety of services over a fiscal year. Basically, it’s our financial plan. This item is presented as a “Public Hearing,” meaning that community members are invited (and encouraged) to participate in the discussion. For the upcoming fiscal year (Fiscal Year 2018-19), the proposed citywide Operating Budget totals approximately $148.8 million. A key portion of the operating budget is the City’s General Fund ($77 million) which accounts for most of the major services to residents and businesses. The proposed three-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget totals approximately $35 million over a three-year period.
