Budget Process

The City uses a modified, zero-based budget process.  This process requires each Department to identify annually the services and functions it performs; justify the services and functions at the Department level, Committee level, and  Finance Committee level; and then build a budget for each line item, starting at zero. This method allows for a detailed look at both the services that are provided and their efficiency. This comprehensive, labor-intensive process requires each committee to review every activity based on its own merit as opposed to a budget process that determines funding based only on previous cost history.
