FY25 Budget

Fiscal Year 2025 Budget

Each year, the City adopts an annual budget, which is an appropriation of public funds for the following Fiscal Year. The City's Fiscal Year begins each year on July 1 and ends on June 30. The budget is named for the year in which it ends. By the time a Fiscal Year begins, the City is already looking ahead to budget for the following fiscal year. See  Adoption Process below to learn how the City budget is considered and approved each year. The City Council approves a schedule to develop the budget each year.

The Annual Budget is comprised of three parts: The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for capital expenses and identified projects, the General Fund budget which includes all department costs, and the Enterprise Funds budget which focuses on the sewer, stormwater, and water projects.

Adoption Process

The City Manager presents the following Fiscal Year budget each winter to the City Council for consideration. The City Council, over one or more meetings, will come to a decision on the budgets for the General Fund (all department costs) and for the Enterprise Funds (Sewer, Stormwater and Water). The Council approves the Enterprise Fund budgets and sends the General Fund budget to the voters on Town Meeting Day. 

All Budget documents will be posted on this website. Voters may also go to City Hall to obtain a budget book or call (802) 846-4107 to have a book mailed to them. This budget book also contains the School District's Budget. The South Burlington School District is a separate political and fiscal entity from the City.

There will be an annual City meeting with a public hearing held on Monday, March 4, 2024, in the Auditorium of 180 Market Street on the eve of Town meeting Day. The budget is adopted when approved by the voters.
