Budget in Brief
The City’s major revenue sources have maintained strong growth for both the General and the Utility Funds. The largest revenue source for the General Fund, sales and use tax, remains consistent with the City’s trending growth even during the economic fallout triggered by the coronavirus pandemic and the rising cost of doing business. During the budget process, the City focused on keeping most departmental budget line items constant compared to the previous year by utilizing a zero-based budget approach, and ensuring the City continues to fund capital projects and infrastructure needs.
Fiscal Year 2023-2024 Operating Budget totals $68 million for all funds. Of that amount, approximately $44.5 million is for continued operations, $11.25 million for debt service, and the funding for capital improvement projects and equipment is $3.58 million. The operating inter-fund transfers are approximately $8.67 million.
