The District Board of Directors dedicates a substantial amount of time and energy to adopt an annual operating budget before the beginning of each fiscal year. The budget serves as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan, and a communication device.
The process for developing our budgets typically begins with strategic planning in June or July by the Audit and Finance Committee; currently consisting of two Board members, the General Manager, and the Administrative Manager, through a series of meetings and analysis, resulting in an operating budget. The District may not spend more than the approved operating budget, and the Board must approve amendments to the budget.
Following are the District budgets for the last five years, in both a pdf format and a searchable excel format.
