The annual budget document for the City of Brentwood provides historical, present and future comparisons of revenues and expenditures; allocations of resources - both fiscal and personnel; and descriptions of the anticipated annual accomplishments of City programs.
The preparation of the annual operating budget along with the six-year Capital Improvements Program and Non-Routine Work Plan represents a significant effort by the operating departments, the Finance Department and the City Manager’s office. The goal is to prepare a comprehensive budget package that meets the criteria of the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award program. The City received the award for the FY 2012 document for the 20th year in a row. In order to receive the award, Brentwood must publish a budget document that meets minimum program criteria as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan, and as an effective communication medium to the public.
