The City's Budget Philosophy
The city's budget reflects careful preparation according to City Council goals, the long-term strategic plan and citywide objectives.
The two-year budget process emphasizes long-range planning, budgeting for results, effective program management and fiscal responsibility. It is the city's policy to ensure that adequate resources are allocated to preserve existing assets and programs before targeting resources toward additional assets and programs, especially those that have ongoing maintenance obligations.
The City of Westminster's budget enables the city to meet its goals of providing excellent customer service, fostering efficient and cost-effective government, maintaining the city's healthy and stable financial position, and delivering high-quality services to meet residents' needs.
