The budget year coincides with the calendar year, running January through December. The budget process follows a timetable established by state law. The proposed city budget for the upcoming year is usually presented to the City Council at a workshop in September, which the public may attend. A summary of the proposed budget is available prior to the workshop at the Finance Department.
Summaries of the approved city budget for the current year can be obtained from the Finance Department. A hard copy of the complete adopted budget is available for review at the Finance Department or the Woodbury branch of the Washington County Library after publication.
