The annual operating budget is the financial plan for raising revenues and expending funds for all City departments. The budget year for all departments other than Oxford Electric begins on October 1. In advance of the beginning of the fiscal year, usually in June through August department heads submit requests for review by the Mayor, CFO, COO, and HR director. The Mayor submits a recommended budget to the Board of Aldermen after this. The Board of Aldermen review the proposed budget and can make any adjustments necessary prior to adopting the budget in September.
Audits are independent reviews of the City's fiscal affairs and operations.
City audits and budgets are available from the City Clerk's office or from the downloadable links below.
