The Mayor and Council are scheduled to first discuss their Fiscal Year 2021 budget priorities, budget process and calendar, and hear a preview about the general fund, during their meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9 at City Hall.

A public hearing, part of the Mayor and Council meeting on Monday, Dec. 16, will give community members their first chance to provide in-person input for development of the operating budget and Capital Improvements Program for FY 2021, which begins July 1.

The budget process gives community members multiple opportunities to provide input on the budget.

The city manager’s proposed budget will be presented in February. Public hearings and work sessions will be held during Mayor and Council meetings in March and April, on dates yet to be announced. The Mayor and Council are scheduled to adopt the FY21 budget in May.
