. The goal of the City budget is to evaluate and direct City departments, helping them make successful decisions in resource allocation, program evaluations, financial management, and long-range planning. The City's fiscal year begins October 1 and terminates on September 30. The Finance Director and Finance Committee review all budgets (General Fund, TCUD, Storm Water, Beach & Swim Center) and present them to City Council on a monthly basis.
