Budget and Fiscal Information for Fiscal Year 2017

The official budgeting process for fiscal year (FY) 2017 began in January 2016 when the City Council held the annual "Coffee with Council," followed by its annual retreat. From the input and outcomes of those public events, the City's Leadership Team,  led by City Manager Ryan Cotton, met to discuss budgeting scenarios and suggestions.  In early April, Ryan Cotton presented a proposed budget to the City Council for its review and discussion.

The City Council  met on April 12th, 13th, 14th, and 18th to discuss the Fiscal Year 2017 budget and the City Manager's proposed budget.

On May 4, 2016, in adherence to Section 9.5 of the City Charter, the City Council held a public hearing and adopted Resolution R2016.20 prepared in accordance with local and state requirements approving the Fiscal Year 2017 budget (July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017), the tax rate of 15.1085 mills and to increase the water, sewer and electric rates included.
