The City Council approved the Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Adopted Budget on March 24, 2016. The adopted budget aligns with the goals established as part of the Citywide Business Plan to set the City on a path toward greater financial stability. As part of a bold new plan to eliminate blight and revitalize Kansas City neighborhoods, the Adopted Budget proposes a comprehensive $10 million bond issue to eliminate the City’s approximately 800 registered dangerous buildings over the next two years.
The Budget Office, a division of the Finance Department, develops the budget in alignment with the Citywide Business plan — which includes public input and performance-based priorities – creating a financial strategy for Kansas City that maximizes its resources to accomplish its near and long-term goals. A successful budget funds City programs, services, and initiatives to best serve the City of Kansas City’s mission, vision, and values, and ultimately improve quality of life for residents.
The Budget Process
The Citywide Business Plan drives the budget process, ensuring that the City’s goals get the attention, funding, and systems that make their achievement possible. The Budget Division works year round with City departments, and with public input, to develop the annual budget. The City of Kansas City’s Fiscal Year spans from May 1 to April 30. The Budget Division plans and executes the allocation of resources to the City functions, to help achieve the goals set forth in the Citywide Business Plan.
