Question

What is a City Budget?

Answer

One of the most important documents of any municipality is the annual city budget. It establishes how public funding will be spent and outlines the spending priorities for the future calendar year. Costs for everyday services such as trash pick up, police patrol, fire response, water services, street repair and recreation and parks programs are itemized in the budget.
