One of the most important documents of any municipality is the annual city budget. It establishes how public funding will be spent and outlines the spending priorities for the future fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). Costs for everyday services, such as police patrol, are itemized in the budget. The largest fund in the City is the General Fund. The General Fund is supported by taxes and fees, and generally has no funding restrictions. Police services are paid for out of the General Fund.
