For Fiscal Year 2016-2017m the budgetary process begins as a team effort in February of each year, starting with City Council budget workshops which were held on March 9 and April 23, 2016.  During the March 9, 2016 Council Meeting, Staff presented projections for the current 2015-2016 fiscal year, as well estimates for the upcoming 2016-2017 budget year.  Highlighted were the Strategic Plan accomplishments to date, the City’s current fiscal reserves, and the financial forecast for the coming year.  Discussed were major long-term initiatives in the coming years.  These initiatives were provided to foster discussion for City Council on public priorities and objectives, while keeping in mind the constraints of the City’s committed reserve levels, increasing public safety costs and a conservative fiscal approach.

The March 23, 2016 provided in depth discussion on public safety priorities in addition to the methodology and composition of the Police and Fire contract rates with the County of Riverside.

The Finance Department works in cooperation with all City departments to formulate revenue projections for the upcoming fiscal year. From this, the individual departments use the projected revenues to prioritize and recommend the next fiscal year’s objectives. The City Manager’s Office and the Finance Department review each budget proposal, revenue assumptions, and all current financial obligations before preparing the proposed document for the City Council. The City Council reviews the proposed budget, and a public hearing is set with the final adoption scheduled no later than the second City Council meeting in June.
