The Budget Process

The City Council conducts its official budget deliberations from late September to mid-November, but drafting the budget is a year-long process. If you have any questions about the process, please contact Erik Sund about the operating budget ( / 206-684-8368 ) and Amy Tsai about the capital budget ( / 206-684-5509.)

Chair Herbold released a list of guiding principles for the Council to consider during this year's budget process.
