Current Budget - FY2014 Adopted Budget
The Balanced Operating & Capital Budget for Fiscal Year 2014 was adopted by City Council. The Budget Document serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device for the City.
It is the foundation for the City’s allocation of resources toward service delivery plans providing quality services, targeted investments, and continued improvements. It also encapsulates incremental changes addressing service requirements and builds upon initiatives funded in prior years while establishing new direction for programs. The Budget Document is also used to evaluate the effectiveness of City programs and services while providing extensive information on municipal operations.

In an effort to keep City Council and San Antonio residents updated and informed on the City’s Budget, a Budget and Financial Status Report is presented quarterly to Council that focuses on the financial and operational performance and provides updated estimates on revenues and expenditures for the remainder of the fiscal year. This financial management practice is one of several the City has in place.
The City’s financial management practices and policies include General Fund budgeted financial reserves, comprehensive long-term financial planning, financial reporting and monitoring, a two-year balanced budget approach guided by “structural balance”, the mid-year budget adjustment, and contingency planning.
