Each year the City undergoes a rigorous budgeting process to ensure that taxpayer funds are being utilized in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Generally this process begins late in the current year (fourth quarter), and the budget is then usually approved by Council in the first quarter of the proposed budget year.

Budget deliberations are public Council meetings, and as such are open to the public and broadcast on the Internet. Links to the live video feed, as well as to past recordings related to budget, will be made available when 2012 budget deliberations begin in late 2011.
