The City budget is overseen and prepared by the City Manager who coordinates operational and capital expenditure needs in consultation with the Department Heads. Department Heads also work together as a Budget Team in collaboration with the City Manager to identify and prioritize capital outlay and acquisitions.
The City Council
provides direction and guidance into the budgeting process through a series of budget workshops that typically take place during February and March. The City's tentative budget is approved at the first City Council meeting in April so that it may be submitted to the Nevada Department of Taxation for review before the required Public Budget Hearing on the second Tuesday of May. The final budget is subject to City Council approval prior to implementation by staff.
The purpose of this budgeting process is to allow for complete transparency and public input into the City's financial planning. The process provides open discussion, evaluation ad direction to City departments, helping them make successful decisions in resource allocation, program evaluations, financial management, and long-range planning.
The City budget is available online after City Council approval.Click the links below to view City Budgets.
