Annual Budget Process

The annual budget process occurs between the months of November and April. During this time, the Finance Department produces public information in various formats, ranging from graphic/simple to comprehensive/granular. Residents can choose what level of detail they wish to see based on the below list.

Annual One Sheet Budget Summary: This document presents budget information in a very graphic and simple format and has been produced since 2015.

Budget in Brief: This is a one-page budget summary. The document has been created since 1986 and while the format has changed slightly, it is still possible to make meaningful comparisons of numbers from 1986 to present.

Audit Report: This very detailed 100+ page document contains very comprehensive and granular information. Digital copies are on-line from 2006 to date and hard copies dating back to the 1970’s are readily available in the finance office.
