About the Budget Process

The City's budget is developed on an biyearly basis. The budget process normally begins in February and ends in December when the final balanced budget is adopted by City Council. 

The City is currently preparing for the 2017-2018 Biennial Budget. The biennial budget statute requires jurisdictions electing a biennium budget to perform a mid-biennium review and modification of the adopted budget per RCW 35A.34.130. The Budget Calendar provides a timeline of events leading up to the adoption of the Mid-Biennium Budget Adjustment. Council approved the 2017-2018 Budget Calendar at the Council Workshop on May 3, 2016. 

2017-18 Biennial Budget

The Mayor's 2017-2018 Biennial Budget was purposed on September 27, 2016 and was approved by Council on December 13, 2015 with amendments.  The adopted budget will be available in March of 2017.

2015-16 Biennial Budget

The 2015-2016 Biennial Budget adopted on December 16, 2014 and a mid-biennium adjustment was approved by Council on December 8, 2015.
