This proposed budget is the opportunity for citizens to review and provide input in how their money will be spent in the coming fiscal year. There are numerous questions raised in its pages. Further analysis is coming, but pay particular attention to Interfund Transfers, and the increase the “Community Building/Recreation Improvements”. Articles are being researched now that will bring additional light to these areas of the City Budget.
We remain hopeful that this budget remains “proposed” until citizens have had the opportunity to ask questions and provide input.
A companion document to your review of the proposed budget should be Games Government Accountants Play.
