The City Council received the City Manager's FY 2014-15 Proposed Budget on July 25, 2014. A workshop to present the details of the Budget was conducted on July 31, 2014.

In addition, two public hearings were held on the tax rate on August 19 and September 9.

As a result of discussions with the City Council, the following changes were made to the City Manager's Proposed Budget as summarized below.
Due to recent negotiations regarding a land purchase for the Airport, staff is proposing to increase the expenditure authority for this fund by $291,296. In addition, projected franchise fee payments ($24,899) by the Airport are also proposed to increase as a result of increased ground lease revenues ($187,546) associated with the above referenced land purchase. Reserves are also planned to be drawn down by an additional $128,649 as a result of the increased expenditures.
