Budget Process

The Town’s budget is based on the Fiscal Year July 1-June 30. The Town Council goes through a rigorous process for developing the annual budget and capital improvement plan. The process starts with the Town Council Annual Retreat to identify priorities for the upcoming fiscal year and beyond.  The Town Manager uses this input to develop the Town Manager Recommended Budget which is formally presented to the Mayor and Town Council.  This is followed by a number of meetings and a public hearing over several months to discuss the General Fund, Utility Fund, Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan, and Schedule of Rates and Fees.
