FY2008 Budget

The FY2007-08 Adopted Budget approved by the City Council reflects the diligent efforts of staff to compile a budget that responds to the City Council goals and objectives in a fiscally sound and prudent manner. This Adopted Budget includes a tax rate decrease and balances City priorities against available resources, while seeking to maintain core services in each department. The budget also includes adjustments that respond to increased demands for public safety and transportation services due to growth, efficiency and quality customer service.

Staff has worked throughout the year with departments, considered citizen input available through citizen surveys and sought guidance from the City Council on the specific priorities to address in the FY2007-08 budget. Staff participated in the City Council Retreat in June, provided budget updates to the Council in July and worked one-on-one with Council Members to ensure that Council input was adequately captured in the development and formulation of this budget. As a result, this adopted budget responds to Council direction regarding the following priorities:

Provide a tax rate decrease
Maintain effective and responsive public safety services
Provide additional funds for streets and infrastructure
Provide step compensation increases to eligible staff
Provide increased funding for Employee Retirement Fund (ERF)

In any budget process, it is always a challenge to balance competing needs against limited resources. The FY2007-08 budget process was no exception. However, with the policy guidance provided by Council, staff has done a good job of creatively balancing increasing service demands and available funding and other resources for optimal return on tax dollars expended.
