During the Fiscal Year 2012 budget cycle, City officials understood that budgetary pressures would continue to mount. To this end, City officials continue to be challenged with stabilizing the organization and balancing the budget while maintaining the principles to highlight performance of our core services.
As a result, City departments were charged to identify budget reductions and structural changes that could help reduce the City’s expenses. Addressing these issues will prevent the organization from incurring a huge, projected shortfall that could limit the City’s ability to provide basic services to the Kalamazoo community.
The budget process began with discussions with department directors and city officials and continued with community meetings. These outlets allowed residents to provide feedback about what City services and priorities should be maintained during this budget cycle.
This web page is dedicated to providing information regarding the 2013 Budget process as the City continues to uphold its goal to effectively use its resources to maintain effective basic public services.
