Each year, the City Council votes to pass a balanced budget before the end of June. The city's fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. The Council conducts hearings on the Mayor's Preliminary Budget in March and hearings on the Mayor's Executive Budget in May. The Council also is able to fund some programs and services directly through discretionary funding and to allocate funding to small capital projects around the city.
