Municipal budget at a high level (e.g. planned budget by unit of appropriation with a programmatic description of each unit of appropriation). This category is about budgets which are plans for expenditure (not actual expenditure in the past). (More info)

Data Location


The operations of the city are grouped into different funds, each with its own sources of revenues. Within each fund are one or more departments, with a department being an organizational unit that provides a major type of public service, such as the Police Department or Public Utilities Department. City departments are frequently comprised of one or more divisions (i.e., the Utilities Construction Division of the Public Utilities Department), which is the unit provided in this data set. Divisions may be comprised of one or more programs, which are smaller functional units responsible for performing specific activities (i.e., the Maintenance Program within the Water Plant Division of the Public Utilities Department). Account codes, also known as line items, provide the most detail within the budget. These are the most basic units in the budget and make it possible to determine, for example, how much is spent on chemicals for the operation of the water plant. The city’s budget preparation involves detailed budget planning and review at the program line item level.
