City to Begin Wrapping-up FY2007 Budget Process

After almost five weeks of presentations from each of the City's 26 departments, the City is ready to begin Budget Wrap-up sessions. The City Manager and City staff have worked diligently in months prior to develop and ensure a sound fiscal recommendation is made through the proposed budget.

Budget wrap-up hearings will begin on Friday, July 28 at 1:00 p.m. in Council Chambers (2nd Floor, City Hall). Addtional wrap up hearings will be held on August 7th immediately after the City Council Agenda Work Session on the 10th Floor of City Hall and August 8th at 1:00 P.M. or immediately following the regular Council meeting in Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, City Hall. The budget hearing process, including the additional wrap-up hearings, do provide opportunity for public commentary on each of the departments' budgets that are up for review.
