City and Town Budgets - Your Input Matters!
Every year by mid-July, each of our Arizona cities and towns are required by law to adopt a balanced budget that is open to citizen input and participation.
Every resident can have a voice in deciding what the budget will be spent on and how it will be paid for in the months before it is adopted.
The City is currently developing the budget for Fiscal Year 18-19 (FY19), which will begin on July 1, 2018. There will be a number of work sessions with the City Council between December and May as the budget development process progresses. These work sessions are a great way for you to be informed and weigh in on the priorities and direction for the City for next year. Highlights of information are posted below, including links to meeting presentations, videos, and minutes. Future meeting agenda items can be found on the Meetings & Agendas section of the city’s website.
