How the City Budget is Developed
In Olympia, we Budget Different. The City budget isn't developed behind closed doors. Instead, we use a unique process that starts by gathering the community's Priorities. Then we continually evaluate our Performance so that we can adjust our Investments as necessary to achieve the community's vision.
We are committed to transparency, accountability and access. That's why we are providing OlyFinance, where citizens can explore all of the City's financial information online, anytime, in real-time.
Budget & Finance Documents
The City's operating budget shows how much revenue we expect for the year, where it comes from, and how we plan to spend that money for our day to day expenses. The final operating budget for the year is available in February/March.
Capital Facilities Plan (CFP)
The CFP is a 6-year spending plan for major projects and infrastructure improvements that exceed $50,000. The CFP is available each December.
Comprehensive Financial Report (CAFR)
The CAFR reports the City's actual revenues, expenses, assets (what we own), and liabilities (what we owe). The CAFR is available each June.
