Financial Policies
The City’s Comprehensive Financial Policy and Investment Policy are two City Council approved policies relating to the City’s finances that require an annual review.
Each year theses policies are reviewed by city staff and the Financial Advisory Board (FAB) and recommended changes are brought to the City Council for review and approval.

These policies are intended to provide financial direction to staff and greater assurance to the City Council/Agency Board on the processes and procedures taken to assure financial responsibility of the City. Continuing annual approval of these Financial Policies has been included in these drafts for the purpose of ongoing review and exposure of the policies to the City Council.
