The City Budget is the financial plan for a one year period. All cities in Oregon have a fiscal year that begins on July 1st, and ends on June 30th. This schedule is set by the state. Cities in Oregon must plan a balanced budget, meaning the available funds and expenses must be equal. Operating costs, as well as reserves for unexpected events or future  projects are all accounted for. The budget allows the City to spend money, and sets a limit on how much can be spent. For more information on how the budget works, click the “Budgeting Basics” link. The process of creating the budget begins in April of each year, and  must be completed by  June 30th. Click on the “Budget Calendar” link to the for more details on the budget process timeline. To view the most recent budget, click the “Annual Budget” link.


The City is audited each year by professional auditors from an independent company. Click here for the most recent audit. Older audits are available on the Secretary of State website.
