Budget Information

Budget Procedure

Tax Budget - The City’s budget procedure is a very detailed process. From May to June of the current year, the tax budget is prepared and approved by City Council for submission to the County in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code. This budget procedure forecasts fund balances at the end of the next fiscal year based on information available in May and June of the current year. The tax budget is prepared jointly between the finance and administration departments. 

5-Year Budget - From October to November of the current year, the City five-year budget is prepared. This process starts with the budgeted current year figures and attempts to revise these figures (if applicable) for the remainder of the year. Then predictions are made for the next five years based on economic factors and assumptions provided by administration. The five-year budget takes a long-term look at the direction of the City. Each department director prepares the budgeted expenditures that relate to the applicable department. The finance department prepares the budgeted revenues. The City Administrator then reviews all figures in detail, and amendments are made as necessary.

1-Year Budget - From November to December of the current year the one-year budget is prepared. This document becomes the basis for the appropriation/estimated revenue ordinance passed for the next fiscal year. Each department director prepares the budgeted expenditures that relate to the applicable department and the finance department prepares the budgeted revenues. The City Administrator then reviews all figures before the budget is final. At or near the first day of the fiscal year, the budget appropriations/estimated revenues ordinance is passed by City Council.
