Budget Documents

City Council Adopts 2014-2015 Budget
On Tuesday, June 10, 2014, the Tigard City Council adopted the approved budget for the next fiscal year (FY 2015) for both the city and urban renewal district. The adopted budget will be available online by Friday, August 1.

The upcoming year will be largely a hold-the-line budget. First and foremost, this budget aims for fiscal responsibility. When budget reductions were made prior to FY 2013, the reductions were made to be sustainable for 3-5 years. The FY 2015 budget continues to be sustainable for at least another 3-5 years.

A couple key items in the budget include:
  • Operations next year are budgeted at a similar level to our current year.
  • There are five new positions and all are paid for using the current resources the city already has.
    - Three are in Public Works, where we are converting dollars we spend for temporary and seasonal staff to create positions to help out in Fleet, Facilities, and Parks.
    - A new Communications Strategist position in City Management will help with a long standing city and Council goal to improve public involvement and communications with our community. This is paid for by converting dollars we now spend for printing, postage and other savings and transition the Cityscape newsletter to (mostly) an electronic format.
    - The fifth position formalizes the LO/Tigard Water Partnership Project Director which will represent Tigard's interests, paid for with Tigard's water fund resources for the project.
  • Tigard is making some key one-time investments to improve efficiency and the way we provide service to our customers, the public. These include:
    - Automated Materials Handling equipment in the Library which will sort materials and allow more people to perform re-shelving duties, meaning our library patrons will get their library materials faster.
    - Mobile computing equipment for Police which will allow for less time in the office and more time in the field.
    - A new phone system for the city - modernizing our phone system and increase reliability.
    - Fixes for the exterior of the Permit Center with Police and City Hall.
  • Additionally, this budget moves our first strategic plan forward. This is done by making investments in:
    Focusing our existing core services on the plan goals
    - Supporting public communications and engagement
    - Performing a parks maintenance study to determine service levels, costs, and proposed funding of current and future parks and trails
    - Additional partial position support for geographic information services (GIS) to help with mapping connections and other communications

View the CCDA Budget
The City Center Development Agency (CCDA) is charged with the revitalization of Downtown and implementation of the Urban Renewal Plan, which was approved by voters in May of 2006. The source of funding comes from tax increment financing. When the CCDA was established, the assessed value of the district was frozen.

Property taxes collected on any growth in assessed value over and above the frozen base (the increment) can be invested by the CCDA on urban renewal projects to foster economic development in the Downtown.
