City begins 2014 budget review

(Jun 17, 2013)

As part of the City of Westminster’s two-year budget process, a budget review will be conducted in late summer/early fall to consider any proposed modifications to the Adopted 2014 Budget that City Council approved in October 2012.

The mid-budget review is intended to consider minor adjustments to the adopted budget and not intended to be a complete re-development of the adopted budget. This review is intended to consider the following:

  • minor amendments or adjustments related to unanticipated circumstances or events since the budget was adopted in October 2012;
  • programs and services that will be analyzed for potential adjustments; and
  • new citizen budget requests.

Key milestones in the review process include:

  • June 24 - Post City Council Meeting – presentation on program/service analysis review.
  • July 8 - City Council Meeting – presentation providing an overview of any potential program or service changes; opportunity for public comment.
  • Sept. 9 - City Council Meeting – presentation and public meeting on the Adopted 2014 Budget; opportunity for public comment.
  • Sept. 16 - City Council Study Session – review proposed modifications to the Adopted 2014 Budget.
  • Oct. 14 - City Council Meeting – consider formal action on the budget.

Citizens do not need to wait for a formal meeting to provide feedback on the Adopted 2014 Budget or to submit a budget request; citizens will also have the opportunity for input throughout the year including the following:

  • Conversations with the mayor and City Council at mayor and council outreach events (such as We’re All Ears, mayor and council desserts and breakfasts, etc.);
  • Telephone calls with the mayor, City Council or the City Manager’s Office;
  • Traditional mail communications (c/o City Manager’s Office, 4800 W. 92nd Avenue, Westminster, CO 80031); 
  • Email communications via westycmo@cityofwestminster.us); or
  • Inquiries and/or requests through Access Westminster.

Copies of the Adopted 2013-2014 Budget are available online, in the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, College Hill Library and Irving Street Library.
