What is the City Budget?
The Budget provides the financial framework for all City activities during a twelve month period. The budget lays out the work plans that have been developed by all City departments so that the top priorities of City Council, along with the day to day services provided to the citizens of San Clemente, are accomplished during the year. For fiscal year 2010, the City's General Fund budget is $49.5 million.

How is the Budget created?
The budget process begins in January and concludes in June. An executive team approach is used to develop the budget. Representatives from each department, along with the City Manager and Assistant City Manager utilize guidance provided by the City Council's Strategic Priority and Long Term Financial Plan processes, to produce the City's budget.
