City gearing up for budget discussions

From City Manager Wendell Johnson


We have completed a full week of budget discussion and will continue into next week with a final comparison of revenues and expenditures.   It is the Staff’s objective to have the first budget draft available for distribution to the Council on July 5, 2011.  At this time, most indications are that the City’s FY 12 Budget will be comparable to the current year.

From the staff reports. Some interesting facts
