Budgets and Financial Plans
Every year City Council and City staff work together to develop an Annual Budget and Five Year Financial Plan.
The budget process, and the decisions that must be made on how to best lead the development of a safe, vibrant and sustainable city, are supported by the City Council's strategic plan, the Official Community Plan and other budget planning documents.
The budget process is an important arena where public priorities are discussed and debated and where important choices are made by City Council; both strategic choices and choices in the allocation of scarce resources. It incorporates a long-term perspective, establishes linkages to organizational goals and focuses budget decisions on results and outcomes.
