FY 2018 Budget
The Town's fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. The budget, as adopted by the Town Council, is the guide of Town operations for the year, to include funding priorities. The budget development process begins in the fall and is refined over the winter, and the proposed budget is presented by the Town Manager to the Town Council in March. During the subsequent weeks and months, the Town Council will review the proposed budget, make amendments as desired, and adopt a budget prior to June 30. As part of each budget, the Town Council approves a set of taxes and fees to pay for operations throughout the year.

At the May 1, 2017 Budget Work Session, the Town Council reviewed the budget line-by-line to propose reductions and enhancements and to review requests made by each department. This effort, in addition to the non-binding “straw votes” taken during the meeting, has enabled the Town Council to pave the way to achieving many of its fiscal goals.
