Each year, the Controller's Office gathers City department budget requests to prepare the City's annual budget. Expenditure and revenue estimates are compiled and decisions regarding spending priorities are made by the Mayor with input from the Common Council. Individual departmental budgets are presented to the Common Council in late July. The Council's public hearing and final action on the budget as a whole occur in mid-September and the approved budget is then forwarded to the County Auditor for submittal to the Department of Local Government Finance.
