FY 2018-19 Budget

FY 2018-19 Budget

The Town of Oro Valley is beginning the annual process of developing its operating and capital budgets for the 2018-19 fiscal year.  The Town encourages citizen input in its annual budget process, and the feedback we receive will be taken into consideration by the Mayor and Town Council, the Town Manager and staff when formulating the Town’s financial plan.

We have developed this Budget Information Page to communicate past organizational accomplishments, information relating to the current FY 2017-18 Adopted Budget and links to the other adopted policy documents that guide the Town’s budget preparation, the General Plan and the Strategic Plan.

One way we are soliciting feedback on the budget is through the use of an online budget questionnaire, 5 Questions in 5 Minutes. A link is provided to this questionnaire below. This brief questionnaire will be available from January 29th through February 9, 2018, and participants will have an opportunity to rank potential capital improvement project categories, indicate priority levels on Town programs and services and rate general statements about the Town. Residents will also have the opportunity to attend two public hearings on the FY 2018-19 budget, scheduled for May 16 and June 6, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
