Fall 2016 marked the Budget Kickoff, during which the budget director presented the revenue expectations and the Town Manager established the budget priorities for Fiscal Year 2018 budget.
Following the kickoff, departments began submitting their requests while taking into consideration the priorities laid out by the Town Manager, Cary residents from Budget Public Input Month, and the Town Council PBB goals and objectives.
After the requests were submitted, the budget office worked with the departments and the Town Manager to develop a balanced budget as required by the Local Government and Fiscal Control Act (LGBFCA). The Cary Town Council was officially presented the Recommended Fiscal Year 2018 Budget at its regular meeting on Thursday, May 11, 2017.
