Budget Planning


During the first quarter of the year, the City of Santa Rosa holds a public hearing to solicit information from its residents on the coming year's budget priorities.  In April and May, study sessions are presented to City Council to review the proposed Operations and Maintenance budget, Capital Improvement Program budget and Community Promotions funding requests for the upcoming fiscal year. Mid-June, the City Council holds a public hearing and generally adopts the Operations and Maintenance and Capital Improvement Program budgets at the end of the hearing. The final budget document is then compiled and made available in the Fall.

We appreciate your interest in the City's budget!
