Department Directors and Managers prepare budget requests with consideration of the strategic and budget goals. The Mayor, along with the Budget Director, meets with Directors to review budget requests in detail. Directors are forthcoming and cooperative with this approach. Revenues are estimated based on current assessments, historical data, and other pertinent information. After the presentation of the Mayor’s Proposed Budget to the Board of Aldermen, workshops and public hearings will occur. Once complete, the budget will be adopted, along with the property tax rate.
