Budget Development Process

The proposed budget needs to address all fiscal issues - including revenues, expenditures, and service levels. The City Council will consider the City Manager’s recommended budget, provide ample opportunity for public input, make modifications as they deem necessary, and adopt the final budget in advance of the beginning of the ensuing biennium.

The adopted budget serves as a financial planning and policy document for use by the community, staff, and Council members. The staff’s mission is to prepare the best information possible - including the detailed impact of choices related to fiscal issues, along with program costs and levels of service. Armed with this information and assisted by public input, the Council can make well-informed decisions that ensure the continuance of good public policy in Mill Creek.
