Fiscal Year 2016-17 City Council Adopted Budget

One June 7, 2016 the City Council held a public hearing and adopted the fiscal year 2016-17 budget. To view a copy of the fiscal year 2016-17 adopted budget click here.

The adopted budget includes a General Fund operating budget of $146.4 million and a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget of $20.8 million.  While the adopted FY 2016-17 budget is balanced, the City’s financial outlook is more strained than it has been in recent years.  Positive revenue growth in major discretionary revenues is being outpaced by pension and health care cost increases. Implementation of efficiency measures will be utilized to mitigate the impacts of the cost increases. The City continues to seek new ways to maximize limited resources to deliver high quality services to our community.
