The City prepares a biennial budget during each even-numbered year for the following two-year fiscal period. Mid-biennium budget amendments are made each odd numbered year for the following fiscal year and are approved by Council. This provides an opportunity to make updates or adjustments if needed.

The budget document establishes the City’s priorities and serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communications device.
