An annual budget is the single most important financial responsibility of a local government. The Budgeting Manual for Texas Cities offers a wealth of resources to help cities set financial goals and develop a solid plan to meet them.

Use the manual to:

  • help you assess your community's needs, priorities and challenges and help you define objectives;
  • learn how to do more with less and balance the budget; and
  • produce a budget that goes beyond bare numbers and acts as a barometer for your city's financial health.
