Annual Budgets and Audits

The City Budget

The City Budget is adopted annually in June of each year. The budget document represents the City's main policy document, reflecting yearly priorities and a larger vision developed by the City Council, in conjunction with city departments.

The budget is categorized by fund, with the General Fund being the major operating budget for the city. The General Fund's revenues come primarily from sales taxes. Capital projects funds such as the Community Development Fund, the Mill Creek Project Fund, and the general Capital Projects Fund show expenditures for large projects over $10,000. The Class C Road Fund shows how the City spends gas tax revenues for road maintenance and repair, while the Recreation Fund is a special revenue fund that reflects revenues and expenditures for the city's recreation programs. The city also has two enterprise funds -- Water/Sewer and Storm Water Drainage. Enterprise funds are funded with user fees and are meant to be operated according to best business practices.
