Budget Division

The Budget Division develops and monitors the City's multi-year operating budget, and supports the City's financial strength and transparency by preparing the five year financial forecast and six-month financial status updates, developing and implementing budget policies, systems and procedures; and providing budgetary guidance and support to City departments.

City Council adopted the FY 2018-19 Biennial Budget on June 12, 2018.  The FY 2018-19 Gann Calculation, based on proposed budget numbers, demonstrates that Santa Monica is well under the threshold for tax-funded government services.
