Understanding the Town’s Budget
Through a collaborative effort between the Administrative Services Department and other Town Departments, the budget is based on the priorities set by the Town Council and estimates revenues and expenditures based on current economic conditions.
The Town’s Budget has 3 main components: the Operating Budget, the Capital Improvement Project Budget, and the Redevelopment Successor Agency Budget.
The Operating Budget estimates revenues and expenditures of Town operations. The General Fund is the major operating fund of the Town. The General Fund’s three main sources of revenue are property tax, sales tax, and transient occupancy tax. For Fiscal Year 2016-2017, these three sources of revenue account for over half of the Town’s total estimated General Fund revenues of $17.6 million.
Total budgeted General Fund operating expenditures for Fiscal Year 2016-2017 are $20.4 million. These expenditures are the estimated cost of providing services to the Town, including public safety, road maintenance, snow removal, and planning services.
The Capital Improvement Project Budget (CIP) is a 5 year budget that is updated each year for the next 5 years. The total 5 year FY16/17-FY20/21 CIP Budget, excluding unfunded amounts, is $64.2 million. Capital improvement projects are projects that may last longer than one year, have an investment of more than $10,000, and involve infrastructure or other capital assets. For example, projects include roundabouts, intersection improvements, bridge seal replacements, and bike lane projects.
