The city's budget is a plan that allocates resources to meet the needs and desires of Citrus Heights residents and businesses. The budget is one way by which the City Council and City Staff respond to the community's needs. It balances city revenues and costs with community priorities and requirements.
The city prepares an Annual Budget and Capital Improvement Program for each fiscal year (July through June).
The Annual Budget reflects operating revenues and expenditures that are expected to be incurred in the upcoming year. It also includes prior year accomplishments, key projects for the upcoming year, and a profile of the Citrus Heights community.
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) generally reflects 1-time infrastructure projects that may span more than 1 year. The CIP is used as a supplement to the city's annual budget and identifies potential funding sources and expenditures for capital projects.
