Budgeting for FY 2020, and Beyond

The development of city budgets is most obviously about funding—one fiscal year at a time—the level of services our residents expect.  As taxpayers we know these things cost money, and the budget is a reflection of what we want and what we’re willing to pay for.  But it’s also at least as much about planning for the future, even beyond the next fiscal year, to ensure our continued financial stability and protect our AAA bond rating.  The City Manager’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2020 is no exception.
