Recommended Budget

On November 27, 1984, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 84-182, approving the concept of a two-year budget cycle for the City of Santa Barbara. Pursuant to this resolution, the City Council approves a two-year financial plan at the beginning of each two-year cycle; and consistent with City Charter requirements, the City Council adopts an operating and capital budget each year.

As such, the adopted two-year financial plan includes the operating and capital budget for the first year of the two-year plan. The operating and capital budget for the second year of the plan is adopted the following year, as part of the Mid-Cycle Budget Review, and is referred to as the mid-cycle budget.
