What we do

We work on technical development and production of the City’s annual budget, including forecasting tax revenues, projecting and budgeting labor and benefit costs, and assisting the Mayor and Board of Supervisors with costing and budgeting of policy initiatives.

We manage the City’s adherence to financial policies and voter-approved spending requirements, and produce quarterly budget status updates, forecasts, and various fee-related reports.

We also do property tax revenue apportionment, rate setting, and reporting, place special assessments on property tax bills, and process the Assessor’s changes to prior and current year property tax rolls.

How we work

We produce a range of documents relating to the City's budget, revenues and expenditures, and the fiscal condition of the City. Some are technical in nature, such as the Budget Instructions departments use to prepare their annual budgets. Others are intended to provide an overview of City finances, such as the Five Year Financial Plan.
