Building a Budget

Our annual budget is a reflection of the community's priorities. Each year, staff works to prepare a budget that aligns with the City Council's Vision, Values and Strategic Priorities. The Burnsville City Council takes final action on the annual budget each December. However, developing a budget is a year-round process with multiple meetings that begins formally in June.
